My prayers are with you and your family. There are no words that will take away the pain that you feel. I pray that in time, that the intensity of the pain will lessen. We never want to see our children leave us, ever, or go before us but God knows best. He will get you through this if you just lean on Him. I pray that God will strengthen you until you meet your son, your daughter and your husband again on the other side. Love you

To: Mrs. Morton & the entire family of Ron.

The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. Psalm 28:7
Cast your cares on God he cares for you. I am thankful to God for allowing me the opportunity to have a great friend until the end. He now has a new beginning and he is safe in the masters hands, No more sickness, no more pain, he is now resting in peace. My family is praying for your family.

With much Love,
