I am very sorry about your dad. My thoughts are with you.
He was the best uncle anyone could hope for! He was always there for my sister and I. He was a great man. We knew he could do anything that he set his mind to, the most important thing that he did perfectly was to love and care for his family! He will be greatly missed! Thank goodness for the gospel of Jesus Christ that let's us know that we can be with in the after life!
: I write to your family today with tears streaming down my face. I offer you my thoughts and prayers at this time of sadness. These are the times that put our testimonies of Christ's Atonement to the test and leave us stronger and more committed to live our lives so that our families can be together. I am so grateful for the memories I have of growing up in your home. I have been reminiscing about the years of scouting in your home. The tremendous influence that Kendall has had on my life and the love and support MR. and Mrs. Chambers and your family has always shown me. I love you and thank you for years full of great memories.
I am grieved to hear of the passing of this great man. His life was a true blessing to many people, he had such a friendly, loving nature that he was loved by all. I am truly sorry that I will be unavailable to attend the funeral services but know that my thoughts and prayers will be with all of you. Kendall and Peggy, Susann and Tim, Neal are the children I knew best, my heart goes out to you - truly wish I could be there. You shall be reunited in the heavens and he will have a mansion prepared for you with rod iron rails!!
My thoughts and prayers go out to the family at this time. I did not know Verden personally but do know it is hard when you loose a parent. Verden must have been a great man because his children turned out to be great people. My deepest sympathy with you at this time.
