    Mark & Coleen,
    You are in our thoughts and prayers. God never gives us more than we can handle. He always provides His children with the grace they need for the trials which He sends their way. May God provide that special grace to you and your family in this time of grief. May He lift you up and bring special honor to Himself through you. May He minister to you as you have ministered to others.

    Mark, Coleen, and all your family, Thinking of, and praying for you.. I lost my dad last month so I know how this can shatter your very world. But rejoice in all the memories, we all made a list of dad-ism’s and stories we recall, it was precious just remembering and reliving those times. You will celebrate her life in your own way, she left quite a legacy in all of you. She is in good hands, and so are you. eHugs to all.

    Condolances to the Friar family from your old “Shoreline Lake” neighbor. What good times we had together and it brings a tear to my eye thinking of how you will be missed by all.

    Dear Friar family, please accept my sincere sympathy. May you look forward to the time when the Bible says that “(God) will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will morning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away” (Revelation 21:4).
