Richard and family:
I would like to take this opportunity to offer my condolences on the loss of the patriarch of your family.
I know well the pain and suffering of loss but extend my prayers for your healing to be swift and complete.
A believer is taught when our earthly walk is complete there will be a future beyond brighter and more beautiful than anything we could ever imagine. I know Mr. Earl has now received his reward for a life well-lived.
It's true his earthly form will be missed but a smell, a touch or a sound will bring his treasured memory to your hearts and will bring you comfort. Treasure each and every one of those memories for they are the greatest gifts our loved ones can leave us.
I bid you peace and comfort in the coming times and know your next meeting will be a grand reunion indeed.
God bless each of you in this time of sorrow.
