Aunt Josie and Deb, I was so sorry to hear about Uncle Web. One good thing is he is with dad now and neither one of them are hurting anymore. They are both in a better place and one day you and mom will see them again and you all will be together and never have to be apart anymore. Love you, Lynn

Dear Aunt Josie and Debbie,

I just heard about Uncle Wib. I’m So very Sorry. I know what you are going through. The loss of a loved one is the most difficult thing to bear. Today, is for tears and grieving. The times ahead will be sad and difficult, but SOON you will be able to remember Uncle Wib with smiles and laughter. We will ALWAYS remember him for his quick wit and joking personality He has brought smiles to many faces over the years. Uncle Wib will be remembered fondly and missed by many. The only COMFORT I can offer is knowing that his pain and suffering is now over, and he has joined God’s army of “Heavens Soldiers”..We will, ONE DAY, be reunited with those who have gone before us, but until that time, PLEASE remember that you are BOTH in my thoughts and Prayers. We will talk soon.

Love and Prayers,

Dear Aunt Josie, Deb, Kristin Jo & family,

We are so sorry to hear of Uncle Wib’s passing. We know how much he was loved and will be missed by you all.

We have so many memories of the fun -spirited comedian he was. As well as his loving side he expressed when talking about the family. He loved and was so proud of you, Kristin and of your two kiddos. His face would light up each time he talked about Ryan and Kaitlyn! He loved talking about Kaitlyn and her dancing and Ryan being a “Big Red!”

Our love and prayers are coming your way during this difficult time and always.

God Bless ~
