Sending my deepest sympathy and keeping your family in my thoughts and prayers. It was special to spend time with all of you a few weeks ago and remember so many good times with your family. Your parents were extraordinary people and touched the lives of many. May you find comfort in your faith, your warm memories, and the love and support of family and friends. Most of all, take comfort in knowing that your mom and dad are together again and enjoying the peace and joy of everlasting life.

My thoughts and prayers are with your family. Your parents were 2 of the most generous, supportive people I have known. Now they are reunited and with their God, whom they loved above everything. Love, Carol
