    Uncle Ken, Kathy, Jerry and Brent, Our thoughts and prayers are with you all today and in the coming months and days. It was so sad to hear of Aunt Goldie’s passing, as she was a very dear to person to me (even though it’s been years since I have either her or Uncle Ken……for which I do apologize). Since it’s been almost a year since Mom (Ruby) passed we know all too well what you are going through, and the deep loss you are feeling. Please know the Lord is beside you every step of the way, and He will never leave you, lean on Him as he will bring you the strength you so need now. If there is anything we can do please do not hesitate to contact us. Hope to see you Uncle Ken sometime when we come to Kansas. We love you dearly, and will be thinking of you all the day of the funeral.

    Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of you as you travel the pathway of grief today and in the days to come. I have many memories of when our families would get together as we kids were growing up. I remember Aunt Goldie as a very beautiful and sweet person. I admired her strength for all she had to endure physically through the years. She was an amazing person. We know she will be missed a lot and after what we went through with Mom (Ruby) dealing with the pain she was in we realize that Aunt Goldie’s passing is a mixed bag of emotions going full throttle right now as well. You will miss her presence so much but I’m sure that like us you wouldn’t wish her back to endure the pain again for anything. I’m so glad we don’t have to walk that path of grief alone and that Jesus is with us every step of the way. He is with you all too and won’t leave you. Love and Prayers are going your way.
