Not sure what to say?

Very sorry to hear of Bob's passing. He was a dear, sweet man and will be missed. Rest in peace my friend.

Kass my prayers are with you and your family.

Dear Neuman Family,
It is very thoughtful of you to request donations be made to the Natchitoches Humane Society. I volunteer with them and I know how hard they work to make good things happen for some very needy animals. Thank you and sorry for you loss. Mr. Robert will be missed.
Sincerely, Juanita Murphy
