You are all in my thoughts and prayers. Loosing a parent and loved one is never easy but take comfort in the fact that he is in heaven now healthy and happy. I'm so sad that you have lost a Husband, Father and Grandfather. I am also sad that I have lost another of my first cousins. So many wonderful memories of Jerry. Thinking of you all. Love Cindy and Ted

Teresa, I am sorry to hear of the death of your dad. Please accept my sympathy. I pray for God's blessings on you and your family at this difficult time. Love, Doris

When we lose a loved one here on earth, we gain an angel in heaven that watches over us. May you take comfort in knowing that you have an angel to watch over you now. You are all in our thoughts and prayers.
