Dear Overton Family,
The Smith Family is lifting each of you in prayer during your time of loss. I pray that God's peace that passes all understanding find you quickly and His comfort heal your heartbreak. Please know you are loved and cherished by your friends and loved ones. Don't Forget! My comfort during these times in my life was knowing that to be absent from here is to be present with God. There is such peace in knowing without a doubt where he is today.
With Much Love,
