My heart is very sad and heavy, and my deepest heartfelt sympathy, thoughts, and prayers go out to you, your sister, and all of your extended family in this time of your tragic loss. So glad that I had the opportunity to see the memorial and attend the funeral service to speak to you.
I was fortunate enough to call Mike and Cynthia McLelland my friends. We attended church together, were in the same Sunday school class, and I saw them often at various functions when we all lived in Terrell. My son, Justin and I also had the opportunity of going on a FUMC-Terrell ski trip with Mike, Cynthia, and Nathan back in January 2006. Being able to room with Mike and Cynthia where we stayed, I got to know them even better. How I enjoyed our meals and card games together!
She told me when they met and found each other, they knew from the beginning that they were "soul mates" and meant to be together forever. They were both so honest, and one thing I will always remember that she taught me was "to not worry so much about what other people think."
They were two of the nicest, funniest, loveliest people I've ever known. Rest in peace my dear friends...you will be greatly missed.
