Vickie & LeAnna,

Just saw your father’s obituary in the newspaper. It’s been many years ago when we were teenagers, but I still remember the love that filled your home and the respect your family had for each other. I’m sure that was put in place by two great parents. Please accept my sincere condolences on your loss.

LeAnna, Vickie, Jeannie & Tommy,

Your parents were both such dear people. We were blessed to know them. Now they are together again–wonderful for them but hard on those left behind. We are so sorry for the loss of your beloved Dad, and send our condolences and prayers for peace and comfort.

Love,

Jeannie, LeAnna, Vickie & Tommy, I am so sorry for your loss. Thinking of your Dad brings back so many memories of both your parents and their love and care for others. They both gave so much of themselves, and positively impacted so many young lives, including mine. I remember having to look “way up” to see into your dad’s eyes. Now when I look up, I’ll see him in heaven with our families.
