Condolence & Memory Journal

I would have been there but did not get your message until today (March 1). Your parents were so good to me. They treated me like one of their own. I so enjoyed my time at your home when we were little and best of friends. I'm so sorry for your loss. It is very difficult to lose a parent. My prayers go out to you all. God Bless...I so appreciate your message, I just wish I had seen it sooner. Please tell your mom I asked about her.
