My thoughts and prayers are with you. Your family was a big part of my childhood. Thank you for your kindness. I have many fond memories of the time spent with your family. I am sorry for not making it to the services, I did not hear of your loss until Saturday. I would have preferred to have paid my respects and offered my condolences in person. May the comfort of our Lord and Savior cover you and your family at this time.
