Linda, Sorry I couldn’t be there for you. But I held YOU close to my heart, and said many prayers for you and your family! Take the time to grieve and with time you will heal. The arch in your heart will be there for quite awhile. But they say God doesn’t give us anything we can’t handle, and he will help us thru this too…Take care girl and I’m here anytime day or night, just call!! All my love and prayers.

Carlene, Jackie and family
May God give your family comfort during this time of sorrow. Know that your son and brother is with God rejoicing and celebrating with his loved ones who were waiting fr him. He is singing, laughing, smiling and radiant with joy. I know how hard it is now for all of you as I lost my mother and father within 6 months of each other. God will see all of us through our loss of our loved ones. May all of you treasured memories give you comfort. We will keep you in our prayers.
Mary and Darwin Weatherbie
