Robert, I am sending my deepest condolences in the loss of your father. Know that you and your family are in my prayers .
God Bless Deidra G. (Pathways)

Romans 8:38-39.
For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future,
nor any powers, neither height nor depth. nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the
love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

I offer my humble prayers for the loss of your treasured father. My brother and I have missed seeing him since we could not visit the care facility. I always valued stopping and checking on Ed. He was so appreciative of just spending a few moments with him. I will always remember him and I have been blessed that our paths crossed. God Bless each of you. Love and Prayers Judy Walters Sears.
