Our deepest sympathy goes out to John's family.
I have known Jr. for so many years having gone to High School with him and being in a family at the same time...Jr will be remembered by many.
May God Bless each and every one of his family members, especially his children and grandchildren.

Dear Kellee:
I am so sorry for your loss. I know all too well that words never seem to come easy, or seem quite adequate at a time like this, but please know that you are in my thoughts & prayers. May God bless and comfort you at this time. If you need anything at all, please do not hesitate to call on me.

A Better Place

There's a place we've never seen beyond this world we know, a place we've only heard of but someday hope to go-- It's not on any map, there are no roads to take us there, But it's a place of perfect peace where hearts are free from care. And though we understand some may be saddened when we leave, one day, we all will meet again-- that's what we believe...When its time to travel there, we think we will wear a smile, we'll say good-bye to those we love, but only for a while, Knowing there are others who have traveled there alone, who cannot wait to greet us and to whisper "welcome home."
May love surround you
May faith sustain you
May hope encourage you
and May God our Heavenly Father keep you in perfect peace.

I am sad to see another member of the family go so young, but yet I am glad that he no longer suffers. You have to be one of the strongest families I know, so many members have passed and yet you survive, and continue to live your lives. Aunt Bonnie, I am so sad for you, losing your husband and now 3 of your children. Yet, you still smile and make the best of things. You did a great job raising your family. Your children adore you and do everything they can to help you. You are truly blessed. I will see you at visitation in the evening and then at the funeral. Blessed Be
