Kelly, Noemi, and Abby,

We are so sorry to hear of Bessie's passing. While she may no longer be with you, the lifetime of memories she has helped to create in your hearts and minds will be a comfort to you in the days ahead. As the Lord will show you, they can even be a source of strength and inspiration to continue living your lives without her until one day you are all reunited.

With Deepest Sympathy and Love,
The Loflin Family
Harold, Mary, Jack, and Brett
