  6. James,
    Bless you James and your family. I am sorry to hear of your loss, but I am also rejoicing with you that your loved one has gone to home to meet her King. I did not know her, but I know enough about you to know that she must have been a Godly woman.

    I will never forget the way you served our mutual friend, and I imagine you learned that loyalty from your mother because of the tenderness and commitment of your care for him.

    We are all thinking of you and praying for a beautiful spirit-lead worship service tomorrow.

    Warm Regards,

    Frank Workman and all of us at Dealers Supply

  14. My sincere condolences on the loss of your dear mother. She will certainly be missed. I hope that God’s promise of a resurrection (John 5:28,29) along with your cherished memories of Louise, will bring you comfort during this difficult time. I, with you, look forward to the fulfillment of God’s original purpose for the earth when we can live forever on a peaceful earth along with our loved ones. – Psalms 37:9-11. Even death will be no more!-Revelation 21:3,4. May these promises be of comfort to you as you gain the strength and inner peace to cope with the days ahead.
