Dear Marilyn and family,

We are so sorry to hear about Uncle Bob's passing. We feel sad that Mom's illness kept her from keeping in touch with her only brother and sibling over the past few years but we know that Mom feels his loss somewhere in her soul right now. We know that she loved him dearly. We celebrate his life with you and will be in prayer that you all will feel God's arms around you now--comforting you and showering you with the Peace that only He can provide.

When we lose someone we love, it seems that time stands still. Those we love and lose are together with us in heart, forever with us in memory. May your Dad rest in peace and May God grant you and your family peace and comfort at this difficult time.
