Dear Harold, Linda, and Ed. Mom just recently heard of Evelyn's passing. We are sincerely sorry. She was a great lady and will be deeply missed.

Harold, I am so sorry that I could not make it to Evelyn's funeral.
So sorry that she is gone, but we MUST always picture her with our Lord and experiencing MUCH happiness.
You folks were always a neat couple and I pray that you will be blessed with friends and family to help mend your loss.
Love and Prayers,

My condolences go to Linda and her entire family. You have been through more than one person should ever go through. Love Ya.

I am sorry to learn of your family sorrow. The death of a loved one is painful. If I may, I'd like to share scripture found in your Bible that may comfort you in some way. John 6:40 reads...For this is the will of my Father, that everyone that beholds the Son and exercises faith in him should have everlasting life, and I will resurrect him in the last day. You see, according to this promise, we have hope.
