- My heart goes out to you all. So hard to say goodbye....allow faith in the Lord to carry you through. Not having our mom and dad on this Earth is difficult but knowing they are together in heaven along with others we love gives comfort during the most difficult moments. My love and prayers
- I am sad to hear of another loss for your family. Jean always had a smile when she saw me. And my godfather, Lenny, always had a hug for me. Special couple. My prayers are with all of you.
