Aunt Tillie,

I wish I could have been there at the funeral. I have always enjoyed spending time with you and Doug (and the boys) and I know you will miss him dearly. I was traveling in Canada when Bill told me. Just wanted you to know that our thoughts are with you and know you will draw strength from the Lord.

Our prayers are with you.

I wanted to say how sorry I am for your loss. If you need ANYTHING please let me know. I wish I could have made it to the viewing but I was unable to. You are in our thoughts and prayers! You were the best to work with and Makayla loved you. I wish I could do more than say I am sorry. Please let me help if there is ANYTHING I can do.

Sorry for the loss of James .He is in a far better place and out of pain.

My pastor told me when someone passes his last thought of that person is "Now he knows."

Now James knows his faith has been rewarded is in heaven next to God.

In Christ,
