    Dear Family,
    Mr John was a Godly man. That is such a comfort for you I am sure. When I visited him at Lincoln Care he always recognized me as Bobby’s wife and asked about him. Sad that those of his caliber have and are leaving us. We are glad he was our friend.
    In Christian love

    I am so sorry for your loss of Dad, father-in-law, grandfather. We will all remember him as a wonderful man and truly loyal and devoted Christian man. As a family member you all have a deeper more enduring loss but as he taught you you know he is now with Mrs. Pierce and angels are welcoming him home with open arms.

    I will continue to think of you, pray for you as you grieve.May you feel God’s arms embrace you during your personal loss.
