Anita & Family,

I am certainly sorry for your loss. I am glad of Ed's assurance of salvation. Though I am glad of Ed's eternity, losing someone you love is very difficult.

Anita, you were amazing at the time of crisis. The same strength that has helped you thus far will sustain you in days to come.

On behalf of myself and the entire church, we will support you in any way possible.

Tammy and Family,

There are no words that can express our sympathy on the loss of your Father here in this life but one day you will be together again. We would like all of you to know that we are here for you.

Tammy: It's probably been 30 years since we were students together at Williamsburg Elementary School but I do still remember you. I am sorry for your loss and will keep you and your family in my prayers.
