I’m so sorry for your familys loss. Please accept my sincere condolences. I personally know the loss of a loved one, and the pain can seem overwhelming. However, I found comfort in the Bible’s promise for the future (Acts 24:15) I hope this helps bring some comfort in this time of sorrow.

I extend my deepest condolences for the loss of your precious loved one. I can't takeaway your pain, but there is comfort in knowing the Bible speaks of the resurrection. Acts 24:15 in part it reads " And I have hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection."
Praying for your family.

Helen, I have always thought of you and Paul as my my dear friends and close family. Paul was always into something and I have a lot of fond memories. Dad tells stories of Paul on a regular basis it’s a wonder those two made it. Mom loved you both and she always talked of you and her in Joliet, I know you two had lots of good times and kept the guys grounded. I love you always, much love and hugs, may your memories and God’s Love comfort you. Cissy – Connie Davis

Helen,

I was so sorry to hear of your loss. However, I know in Whom your great husband had placed his faith. It is only a short while until we will all who have the same faith in Jesus will gather together in that place where we will lift our hands and praise our savior never to be separated again. I am so thankful for you Helen. You were a great work colleague and friend to me during those years. May God bless you and keep you during the coming days. If there is anything that you might need please call me or send an email- Ronnie Daughtry
