THERE ARE NOT WORDS THAT CAN HELP EASE
THE SENSE OF LOSS
THAT YOU ARE NOW EXPERIENCING;

HOWEVER, IT IS
IMPORTANT FOR YOU TO REMEMBER THAT MANY
OF YOUR FRIENDS AND EXTENDED FAMILY ARE HOLDING YOU AND ALL
OF YOUR FAMILY
IN PRAYER
AND THOUGHT.

NOTHING CAN FILL
THE VOID LEFT BY DEATH.

BUT YOU UNDOUBTEDLY HAVE NUMEROUS
SONGS OF JOY
HAPPY MEMORIES AND PRIZED PHOTOGRAPHS
OF TIMES SPENT WITH
HARRY
THAT BRING BACK
HAPPY HOURS
TOGETHER.

MAY ALL THESE
HAPPY MEMORIES HELP EASE THESE DIFFICULT DAYS.

Blessings and Peace,
Myrtle Garlington
