Dear Fordham family,

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Mr. Carlton was very helpful to me when I lost my Daddy, Billy Allen, in September of this year. He wanted so badly to be a pallbearer for Daddy but was just too sick. He was a very kind and caring man and I know that he will be greatly missed. It is my prayer that he and Daddy are rejoicing together in heaven right.

May God give you peace that passes understanding and the strength to face the times ahead without him.
