Our Sincere Condolences
Please accept my most sincere condolences on your loss. I know the entire family will really miss Donnie. I’m praying for you all. I’m unable to attend services as I’m currently visiting my grandson and his family. Agnes, if you ever want to talk, feel free to call me.
I am so sorry for your loss. I know your dad is in Heaven and has his mansion. I believe Jesus said,”Well done, my good and faithful servant.” He loved his children, his wife, and grandchildren. He was proud of all of you and he’s still watching over you. It’s not goodbye, it’s until we meet again. I know no words can take the pain of losing him away, but know he lives on, in our hearts, your smiles, your lives. God bless you!!
