Not sure what to say?

I miss my friend James still and will keep his memories in my heart! RIP

Dear Family,
You all are in our thoughts and prayers.
May God give you comfort and strength.
Love and many blessings always!

To Linda and the Lanier family, my prayers are with you. I pray that God will comfort, strengthen, keep and bless you. Grandpa Lanier was what God meant when He said, to love everybody, because he showed himself to be friendly. I worked with Grandpa Lanier at Brand-Hardin-Sims CDC, and I have very fond memories of him.

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
