My Dear Sweet Melba,
What can I say-so so sorry to hear of Temp's passing. Can't you just see him in Heaven on his bike having a great time just cruising around on the clouds. Such a love you two had. You know I love you, girl. Always here.

Melba, you and all the family are in my prayers. I wish there was something to say to remove the hurt, but the Lord decided you needed to be with your son when you had to bid Temp bon voyage as he made this last trip. Just think of all those who were on the shore waiting for his ship to dock! Know that you are loved.
