You are leaving us with a lot of fun stories and a lot of great memories. The cool thing about dying is “we know where you are, and you know who you are with.” Praise God and give Dad a kiss for us. We love you and know you are resting in peace.
To Our Family and Friends; Perhaps you send a lovely card or sat quietly in a chair. Perhaps you sent a funeral spray, if so, we saw it there. Perhaps you spoke the kindest words, as any friend could say; perhaps you were not there at all, just thought of us that day. Whatever you did to console our hearts, we thank you so much whatever the part. From the family of Ramona Post
