    I want you to know how sorry I am for your loss, although it is Cindy’s gain! I think of her now in heaven with Don, Daddy and Mama, Lawrence and Ruth, and others. They certainly had a good life here and I know you all have such wonderful memories to help you in the coming weeks. It is so hard to lose parents but God will comfort. Thinking of you all.
