I am so sorry that I could not attend the viewing for we had other commitments. I just want to let you know my heart and prayers go out to the family. I lost my mom about a 1 1/2 years ago and there isn't a day that goes by without me thinking about her. I am sure the same thing will happen to you. Things do get better with time.

Sorry Carla & family we weren't able to be there for the services, but you are in our thoughts & prayers. We are so blessed to have my Dad's siblings be able to get together when we got married. I think it was the last time they were together before Dad passed away in 2006. Our thoughts are with you.
