  1. To my sweet Daddy. You will be missed so very much. You already are. I am so blessed and thankful for the time we were able to spend together these past few years. I will always cherish the talks and good times we had together. I am forever grateful for God putting us back together again after many years apart. Rest in peace Dad and one day we will all be together once again.

  2. We are so sorry for your loss. When this happens in our family we need more than human strength. God and his Son can provide what we need. Please review these scriptures : John 5:28-29 “Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice 29 and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, and those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment.” Revelation 21:4 “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes,and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”

  3. To my father-in-law Gary White we are going to miss you but we know you in a better place I love you man take care of yourself and we will all meet again take care
