  1. Dear Opie,

    I am sorry that I could not attend either service for your mother. By the time I had read the newspaper on Tuesday evening, it was too late for visitation and I am in school today.
    Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time. As Christians, we have a special peace about seeing our family members again in Heaven.
    I am sending this hug on-line from me, Randy, Courtney and Drew. We love you guys.
    Please extend our sincere sympathies to all of your sweet mother’s family.

    In God’s love and peace,
    Debbie W. Davis

  2. Opie,
    Sorry to hear about the loss of your Mother. I hope you and your family get through this ok.
    Sincere Sympathy,
    Debbie Anders
