Sam and Linda,
I just found out about the loss of your father. Sam, I graduated with you, and remember you well. You must have gotten a lot of your kindness from your Dad. Although I didn't know him, from just what I've read, he must have been the greatest. You're both very lucky to have wonderful memories, something that can never be lost or taken away. God bless you at this time of sadness.

Dear Linda,My heart is heavy upon learning of your loss. What a great blessing it must have been to have your Dad with you for those years. You most certainly have another Guardian Angel to watch over you and someday to welcome you to Heaven and show you around. God Bless and Keep You during this difficult time

Love is stronger than death even though it can't stop death from happening, but no matter how hard death tries it can't separate people from love. It can't take away our memories either. In the end, life is stronger than death. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Let God heal the pain.

Linda and Sandy,
I was so sad to hear of your father's death...I lost my father last year and I know how hard it is to let go. I have great memories of both your parents for many years growing up across the street. Mr. Thompson would tease with me, and he was a gentle man like our "Doug." He would smile when your mother would cut up and we'd laugh at them having a good time on Queensbury visiting each other back and forth across the street late at night! You were blessed to have him for 89 years! Now he is safe in our Heavenly Father's arms. Your family is in our thoughts and prayers at this time of great sorrow, but you'll treasure the wonderful memories forever. Love always, Teresa Jaynes McLeod
