RIP My Dear Friend. You can now be At Ease. Thank You for being such a big part of my early years, you and Charlie can pick on Clay and Me once again.
To Linda, Daniel and Anna,
May God bring you peace and comfort.
My heart goes out to you and your family. My deepest condolences. A little prayer:
God say you were getting tired and a cure was not to be, so He put His arms around you and whispered, “Come to Me.” With tearful eyes we watched you, and saw you pass away. Although we loved you dearly, we could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, hard-working hands at rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best.
Take Care and God Bless you….Juliet
Dear Linda, Danny and Annabelle.

Thinking of you…
