I was so sorry to hear of cousin Shirley's death. My thoughts and prayers are with your family during these sad days.
I have known your mother for a few years because I met her at my work. She was always so kind and we always visited even before I knew you and Sandy. I am sorry you had to go through this sadness at this time of year but then again I know where she is and who she is with. What a wonderful thing to spend Christmas with our Savior, in his home. I will miss her and wish you and your family peace and comfort. God Bless.
Dear Wesley and family,
I was so sorry to hear from you about Shirley. We will sure miss seeing you and Shirley in physical therapy. You were such a dedicated and loving couple. We will miss you but always will remember your sweet hellos and smiles.
