Dear family:
We are sorry we couldn't be there yesterday. I'm not able to travel that distance and it was hard for me. I think Aunt Ella was like a sister to Mom as she didn't have a sister. I'm thankful that they were so close.
Our prayers are with you as you grieve your mother, grandmother, etc. God give you comfort and may you sense His loving arms around you.

With love,
Carol & Walter
