Not sure what to say?

Dear John and Joanne,

We were so sorry to hear that Theo passed away. Know that he is no longer suffering, and is with Martha eternally now. May he forever live on in fond memories. Our prayers are with you all, always.

Jill and Tom

Dear John and Joanne,
We were so sorry to hear of Theo's passing. He lived a full life. His years of of service (in the military and in his community) were reflective of the man he was. He was loved and respected by all who knew him. Now he can finally rest and be with his Martha. He will be missed but will live on in many beautiful memories. In deepest sympathy,
Peggy, Phil, PJ, Andrew and Nick

Dear John, Joanne and Jan-

Today was so very special, what a Tribute to "Mr. T." The Presentation of the Flag to Taps was just beautiful and even the rain held off. The Angels were shining down on all of you and the wonderful Nurses who took such great care of your Dad. I will miss our "discussions" about Florida vs. Florida State, Easter Brunches at the Club and your Dad's sense of humor!

I'm glad I could identify the "funeral crasher" this...

I am thinking about you and sending love.
Bev Nelson

Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
John and Terry

Dear John & Joanne, although we met dad only a few times (especially your wedding day) you both shared your love for him via so many great stories and wonderful memories. And we always took delight in the fact that he and Cindy shared the same birthday (day not date!). His incredible earthly journey has come to an end but his new birth is beyond compare. May he and Martha now bask together in His Eternal Glory! All Our Love, Aunt Cindy and Uncle Dave

I am sorry for your loss. I never met your father, but he was a dear friend to my parents, Charlie and Anna Mae and they always spoke highly of him. Our parents had a long history together and I enjoyed listening to my mom and dad talk about the good old days. My thoughts are with you at this difficult time.
