Not sure what to say?

Betty from Brown and Brown just told us of Mr. Wheeler's passing. We have worked with Cast for many years. Thankful for your family's service to our community.

To all of the family of Basil's. I am truly sorry for the lost of your loved one.
He took me under his wing and taught me so much about so many things. He was my mentor and will be.
I loved him so just like a father.
May he rest in peace with our Lord Jesus. And may the families find peace in their hearts and solitude in God.
