My deepest condolences and sympathy to the Holden family on the sudden and unexpected passing of your loved one. Lazarus and I were US postal carrier's for over 20 years and later worked together for 13 years as Medical car drivers for Prompt Medical Transportation. The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away. We loved him but God loved him more. Rest In Peace

Sending my Sincerest Condolences and Prayers to the entire Holden Family. My siblings and I grew up in the neighborhood and attended Tolleston High School together. They have always been a Loving, close, and kind family of respectful young men and women as long as I've known them. He may be absent from the body but now present with the Lord and will truly be missed. May God Bless you all during these most difficult days ahead. Bonita L. Williams~Howard
