Condolence Messages

  1. Uncle John,
    You were a blessing to our family. Your presence will be missed, but we have gained another Angel. Thank you for loving my cousins and Aunt Brenda dearly. You was a good man and you will never be forgotten.

  2. Dad, I’m sorry I wasn’t there this last time, but I am glad you had others who loved you by your side. If it weren’t for you, I don’t know where I’d be in life right now. You saved me from harm so many times. Thanks for being there for me when I was a little girl and again when I was a teenager and had nowhere to go. I love you!
