Please know you are in our thoughts and prayers during this most difficult time. Sis, how special that you were able to be married for 50 wonderful years. If I recall, Mom and Daddy introduced the two of you @ a square dance. That must have been some dance because I think you were inseparable after that. Hugs coming your way. I’m so sorry for your loss. Love you, Betty

I am sorry to hear about the loss of your dear loved one. Please accept my condolences at this painful time. Losing a loved one is distressing and as comfort is needed from family and friends, we have assurance from the Bible that “death will be swallowed up forever” at Isaiah 25:8. It is my hope your family will find strength to endure during the days ahead.
