Please except my condolences. May you find comfort in knowing that your dear one is safe in the memory of God, who will remember every detail about him and bring him back again. John 5:28, 29 gives this assurance.

I am sorry to hear about Big Boy.
I had just asked about him over Christmas. I heard he had been sick but was home.
I can’t come in for the visitation or funeral.
But wanted to let you know I am thinking about all of you.
Love to all,
Norma Lou Walters
