Dear Donna and Family,

It is so difficult to let go of a loved one. No words can express enough comfort at a time like this. May remembering Richard’s life and his love for you give you some peace during this most difficult time.

Love and prayers for you all,

Dear Kitty and Family,

My heart is with you at this time of sorrow. With time, your heart won’t hurt as much but you will remember so many good things. I remember your DAD always celebrating the 4th of July with beautiful fireworks they were legal in those days. I remember Christmases at your home and I remember the lake trips. May God give your entire family peace.

With fond memories,Barbara Schmitz

Dear Kitty, Errol and family,

I am so sorry to hear about your dad’s death and pray that he will rest in peace.

I remember him so well from when we were little girls, Kitty. He always seemed to have a smile for everyone.

This is a difficult time of year to experience the death of a loved one. My mother died 12-15-77 and my sister, Patricia, 12-18-96, but then I suppose there is no easy time.

May you all be filled with the Peace, Love and Joy that only the Christ Child gives…and may you be drawn close together as a family because of your shared grief.

Peace….Ginny Moran
