I am so sorry for your loss.

All through high school, I had a designated seat outside the Principals Office. Nevertheless, in spite of my troublesome behavior, your mother/grandmother was always very kind to me. Several years after graduation, I obtained a job at the high school, under your mothers/grandmothers tutelage and supervision. A few months into my employment at the high school, I remember your mother/grandmother cheerfully informing me that I had been accepted and transferred to the Police Division.

Subsequently, every time I drove my Police vehicle past your mother's/grandmother's house, she always had a warm and loving waive for me. I will forever remember her warmth and kindness.

In Christian concern and loving care, you were uplifted in prayer by The Mens Prayer Fellowship of Dauphin Way United Methodist Church.
