I am so sorry for ya'lls loss. Ziggy and Clara were such sweet neighbors. I am so sorry that we didn't see this earlier or I would have brought mom. I told her about Ziggys passing, and she said oh I was wondering about him.
Again we are so sorry for ya'lls loss. He is in Heaven and with your mom.

With our Love,
Beth Collins and Gail Collins Belke

Dear Rosie, I'm so sorry. I know Dad's are tough to lose. No matter how old you are at the time, or how old they are, it's your DAD !
And he sounds like one that will be greatly missed. I will be praying for him twice a day for the next year. If he doesn't need that final boost, he can share the graces with us.
