Condolence Messages

  1. “All praise to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. He is the source of every mercy and the God who comforts us. He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When others are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us” II Corth 1:3-4 NLT. Over the years Tracy and I talked both as a Sister-in-Law and as friends but now I feel it wasn’t enough just because I live in Arizona and you in Ohio, I could have reached out more. The entire Arizona Walker Clan will miss you and I am so glad Ernie, myself and Innette were able to come to Ohio for 4 July 2016 and renewed our family connection. You can sleep now Tracy.
