Our deepest sympathy and prayers in the passing of your beautiful wife, Ivy. We shared conversations in person at your office. She had a beautiful humble spirit. You were so blessed to share your life with hers. Her memories will keep you encouraged. We were stunned to see her being mentioned on FB having passed.
In Christ, you will be together again - never ever to be apart again. (I Thess. 4:13-18)

Stoney, Anyone could tell, just by looking at the two of you together, how much love and adoration you shared. Ivy came along at the perfect time to lift you up and get you back to living. I am forever indebted to her for that. I love you and feel at such loss that I cannot be there to comfort you.
She will always be there for you and watching over you, just as always. Live your life and make her smile. I love you.

Stoney and Jimmy, I am so incredibly sorry for the loss of your precious and beautiful Ivy. I have no words but to offer this prayer up to you and to all who loved her.

Almighty God, look with pity upon the sorrows of your
servants for whom we pray. Remember them, Lord, in your mercy; nourish them with patience; comfort them with a sense of your goodness; lift up your countenance upon them; and give them peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
