Dear Shirley and family, My sympathy and prayers to you at this time. We know that John's entry into eternity brings an end to his sufferings. May the strength of his lasting love help to heal the hurt of separation.
Peace, Shirley, I would like very much to make it to the funeral, but that's not possible. It is good to know that you will be supported by many, many friends and family.
