SO VERY SORRY FOR YOUR LOSS BUT GOD GAINED A BEAUTIFUL FLOWER FOR HIS GARDEN PRAYERS TO THE FAMILY

His Journey's Just Begun
Don't think of him as gone away--
his journey's just begun
life holds so many facets
this earth is only one.
Just think of him as resting
from the sorrows and the tears
in a place of warmth and comfort
where there are no days and years.
Think how he must be wishing
that we could know today
how nothing but our sadness
can really pass away.
And think of him as living
in the hearts of those he touched...
for nothing loved is ever lost--
and he was loved so much.
I was one of those blessed to love and be loved by LuLu. He was one of the most kind, generous, and loving men that I have ever known. He is now safe in the arms of God and has been reunited with those that went before him. And Mimi is probably bossing her baby brother around already...
Lots of love and prayers,

Naomi and Family. I don't know how to begin to tell you how sorry I am. Earl was a dear and precious friend that will remain in my heart forever. We enjoyed working together for many years and I'll always remember his lunch box treats.
As I told Edwina, the world has lost a wonderful man and Heaven has gained an angel. As I think of him walking the streets of gold, I'm happy to know that we'll meet again one day.
I love you "Sis" and you and the family are in my thoughts and Prayers.

I will miss him dearly as I know a lot of people will. You can rest now in the arms of God. Until we meet again, know you were loved Judy Mundy
