Ed and Jackie,

We are saddened by your family’s loss of Ed’s Dad. You have been in our thoughts and prayers since we learned about this from Kay on Monday. I wish there were words that could take away death’s sting. But, joyfully, there is your Dad’s love for Jesus that must assure you of seeing him again. For now though your Dad will continue to live on in you, Ed. And I know you will see him from time to time in the faces of your beautiful children. We love you and wish we could be with you

Consider this note a big, teary hug from me. I am so sorry for you, your sister, Jackie, and your children. It is not fair to lose your dad so soon, and it is not fair that the children won’t grow up making lots of memories with their grandfather. But it is a blessing that your father was not alone and that he suffered very little. I am so glad I was able to spend a little time with him in your home and that I was able to get to know him. He was a man of integrity and you are much like him. You will carry on your father’s legacy with grace and dignity and he will be beaming with pride from above.

With love,
