To the Watt Family:
I'm so sorry to learn about the loss of Honey, your dear mom, grandmom, wife, friend. Although I haven't seen you al in many years, I will always remember her wit, intelligence, patience, and love for others and especially the shining example of her faith. In German there is a saying, "Menschen die im Herrn leben werden einander nie zum letzen Mal sehen." Those who live in the lord will never see each other for the last time. My prayers for gratefulness, peace, and comfort are with you all. ??
