Dear Jeannie and family,

We are so very sorry to hear about the loss of your grandfather. I will be praying for you and your family that the good Lord will be holding you near and giving you comfort during this time. It seems like just yesterday that I was talking to my grandma Waryck, yet she is not here…but the many wonderful memories of her bring me comfort and smiles throughout my days….May you find comfort in the memories that you have of your grandfather.

With Love and Prayers,

DeeDee and Family
