Hi Pam,
I wanted to send my condolences to you and the family. We've already talked about how this isn't a sad departure but a celebration because we know that he's now in the arms of Jesus. What a glorious thought to look forward to ourselves. Know that you're all in my prayers and will be available if you need anything. God bless you and your husband for the kindness that you've shown me. I love you.
Michele
