I extend to you and your family my deepest sympathies and want you to know that I am praying specifically that God send you peace during this difficult time.
Lorri, Michelle, and Vicki….We are so sorry for your loss. I have many fond memories of summer visits and Easter Breaks at your house. Uncle Jim always made us laugh with his tricks off the swimming pool diving board trying to convince us he was a champion diver! May he now rest in peace and may the angels surround him and help him to look over you gals. Rick and I love you all very much. We are always here for you. You all are more like sisters than our cousins and we send our deepest sympathies to you during this difficult time. Rest in peace Uncle Jim….rest in peace.
To the Vanderpool Familymay God be with yu at this very sad time, He will give you the strength to get through this. I pray that He will wrap His arms around you and give you peace and comfort.
Love and Prayers to all of you.

My sincerest condolences to the entire Vanderpool family.
“I am with you always,
Never have a fear,
When you feel the most alone,
Remember I am here.
I have cried as you have cried,
Many times before,
I have had a broken heart,
Yes, and so much more.
I have known betrayal,
Of the cruelest kind,
So sweep away the bitterness,
And put it from your mind.
And let us walk together,
Through the twilight’s glow,
For I have felt as you do now,
Dear child, I know…I know.
I am with you always,
You are not alone,
My love for you is endless,
Because you are My own.
And through your darkest hours,
You will find Me near,
Nor will your crosses ever be,
Too great for you to bear.”
Beyond our troubles, there is light.
