  1. I wanted to express my deepest sympathy for your loss. Even though I did not know Gregory personally, I know how hard it is to lose someone you love. It can be hard to find comfort at a time of great loss, but knowing our Heavenly Father is near to those broken at heart and crushed in spirit can give us the strength to go on. (Psalms 34:18) He promises to soon swallow up death forever and wipe away all the tears from our faces. (Isaiah 25:8) You are in my thoughts and prayers.

  2. To express our deep sympathy to you on your loss. We thank Mr. Molina for serving our country during WW II in the U.S. Army Air Corps. You were a member of “the greatest generation”. May God’s Speed Be With You Airman. It was our privilege to provide your Final Military Honors graveside at Mt Calvary Cemetery.
