Alan and I were so sorry to hear the news. We will never forget the love and caring your whole family showed to Jonathan at South church and are so grateful for the opportunity to know Delma. She was a wonderful woman and I will miss her smile very much. We will be praying for you and the girls.

I was at the airport on Monday and Bev told me of your wife’s passing. Pat and I are thinking of you and your daughters at this devastating time in your lives. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

I miss you. Every day I find myself thinking about you. I wish you would have had a chance to meet Sam, you would’ve liked him. I like to think you’d be proud of the woman I’ve become. I love and miss you mom.
