Please accept my deepest sympathies on the loss of your beloved. There are never any right words to express how deeply sad I am for the pain your family is enduring at this difficult time.

As Chair of the Senate Committee on Veteran Affairs and Military Installations, I am sincerely thankful for his valiant service in defense of our rights and freedom.

His commitment to family, friends, our community, and to serving our great nation leaves a wonderful legacy. May the love and the wonderful memories you shared with him help you when you need it most. He will never be forgotten, and your family will be remembered in my prayers.

Good words for your Dad Jeff, I know they mean alot to him. I am so sorry for your loss. I always enjoyed working with Jimmie during our years at Factory Air Conditioning and in Boloxi, Miss. when in the USAF together. You were just a little tike then. We shared some fun and built some good memories. Our paths and directions change in life, but we all meet up in the end where all things are right once again. May he rest in peace.

Lets not be sad for my Dad, he is where we want to be, no pain, no stress, no pretense, time is meaningless, surrounded by family and friends. I adapted this prose about a ship that puts things into perfect perspective.

I'm standing on the seashore and I see a ship that is very dear to me that carries a lot of happy memories.

It offers its sails to the morning breeze and starts out into the open water.

I watch it until it fades away into the far horizon. Someone next to me quietly says “It is gone…” Gone where? Gone from my vision, that is all.

It still exists, just as when I last saw it. The total loss of sight is in me, not in it.

Just as the person at my side said “it is gone”, there are others who are watching it come on the other side, and their voices are excited as they take up a joyful shout ‘ Here it comes! Here it comes!
