Dear Friend,
I did not know your loved one, but for some reason I fell across his obit while web surfing today. It all came flooding back to me how I lost my own daddy eight years ago over the holidays. I have been crying because I still miss him, but I know beyond the shadow of of a doubt he is happy without sickness and home with his Lord. I just wanted to say there is someone in the world who understands how you are feeling today. You are not alone. I am lifting you up especially in my prayers over Christmas and New Years. Know that Bro. Larry will be waiting to greet you when you get there and most importantly our Heavenly Father. It helps me to know that mine is there awaiting my arriva
...l and celebrating Christmas in the best place ever.
Sending deepest loving thoughts and prayers to you this Christmas Eve from Crossett, Arkansas.
