I’m very sorry to see that you have lost your Father. I didn’t know him well, but had met him at Calcutta Church, so I am confident he has gone home to the Lord. I will pray the Lord gets you through this difficult time and gives you peace in knowing someday you will be reunited with him in heaven. God Bless you and your family.

Dear Tammie and Linda:

I was very sorry to hear of the passing of your Grandfather. Take comfort in the belief that he is in a better place now, and is not suffering. You were there for him and I am sure he knew how much you loved him.

I am sorry I missed calling hours, as I thought they were Tuesday, and only just learned they were last night.

Your family is in my prayers.
