    I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your father and loved one.

    May God comfort you through this very difficult time. Only God and time will help ease the pain, although it will always be a part of your heart missing. It will get easier as time goes by.

    God bless you and keep you.

    Nancy & Myra, I’m so sorry to hear about Bill. I was in the group of gals who were around when Carolyn & Bill met. Hard to believe that they are both gone.
