You have all been in my thoughts and prayers as you deal with this difficult time. I still remember all the good times we had with your mom and your dad--the birthday parties..this will show our age-but the drop the cloths pin in a jar from a chair, do you think our kids would think that is a fun game?? Ah No!! Your dad always mowing the lawn with a can in his hand--was he really mowing? or just touring the yard?? Try to always put your great memories ahead of your sorrow, and know so many people are thinking of you all...hugs to you all.

I was so sorry to read of the passing of your dad. I remember him coaching our 5th grade basketball team. That was a lifetime ago. My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this difficult time. Rely on each other for comfort and always keep the good memories in your heart and mind.

We was sorry to hear about the passing of your loved one. Death may cast a shadow over you as you go about your daily life. Your love one’s death brings you face-to-face with the fact that they are gone too soon. While you call to mind the happy memories, you may also remember the enormity of the loss. But, "Do not let your hearts be troubled". (John 14:27) May you find comfort as the "the last enemy", death will be done away with. (1 Corinthians 15:25, 26). Let this time be a tribute to their wonderful life. Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.
