As time permits you will always remain in our hearts and thoughts;
and I said, oh that I had wings like a dove! for then would I fly away, and be at rest.
As we share in our memories of you and all the wonderful smiles and tender love.
We remember and will forever love you. My beloved Angel til we embrace on the
Eternal Shores.

Dear Juanita and Family,
You are in my heart, thoughts and prayers. Knowing that God has his arms securely wrapped around Dear Ivan makes it a bit easier to deal with this loss. I picture him dancing and smiling with all the other sweet angels in the Household of God. Bless you all!
Love, Sandy Gautier
