My sympathies to Helen and the families. Your memories are precious and will provide you with warmth and probably laughter as time moves on. Sorry I won't be able to be with you on Friday but will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you! I thank God that I was able to see Grandpa one last time this summer. It makes it easier not to be there with all of you now. May God comfort each of you as He is us. Love always, Lorraine & Harv
