My sincere condolences on your great loss. May you find peace and comfort during this sad time…Psalms 25:16,17

Dear Cindy and Family,
I share in the loss of your father, Bob.
No words can console the sorrow you feel. Let the feelings come as they may, with that, comes the memories that will comfort you, these you will treasure forever. Remember, when our loved one passes, heaven is a place with no sickness, no worries, just pure peace. They are young again and able to do all the things they wanted to but no longer could. They meet up with people that they have lost during their lifetime and prepare for the day they will see us again. Even though they are gone from our physical world, they remain with us every day with the soft breeze that blows, the stars in the sky, and many other ways that you will know when they happen. This is when you will smile again and know you are loved and never alone.
