Romans 14:8, If we live, we live for the Lord; and if we die, we die for the Lord. Therefore, whether we live of die, we belong to the Lord.

Perhaps you sent a lovely card or sat tearfully in a chair.

Perhaps you spoke the kindest words that 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 was your part.

God Bless You!
