Dear Harold ...we just learned of your brother's passing this evening and we are sorry we will not be able to be with you and Cheryl at this time. We will be holding you close in our thoughts and in our prayers. If there is anything, other than prayer, that we can do to help you and your family in any way, please do not hesitate to ask.

May God in His infinite wisdom grant you understanding and peace during this time of bereavement and strength to continue on your journey in the days that lay ahead.
Prayerfully with Love,

You and Joanne were like parents and Aunt and Uncle and I am sure you are truly blessed for the Love you had for everyone ❤️. You will be dearly missed and forever in my heart. I will miss our conversations and our visits until I see you again. RIP Uncle Tubby 💞
