Dear Eric, Mrs. Bigler, and Family:

Melinda and I are so sorry for the loss of your father, husband, and head of the family. We share in your loss, as Eric has become a part of our family back in Dayton Ohio. We know, in our spiritual FAITH, that to be absent from the body is to be PRESENT with OUR LORD! That’s the reassurance we hold onto with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength. Jesus said,”When your heart is weary, and you can’t go any farther, place yourself on my back, and I will carry you through to the other side.” Our love and prayers are with you. Eric, call me when you get back to Dayton. OK? Love, Curt & Melinda White.
