Cindy, Mike & family, We are so sorry for the loss of your father. I frequently saw him at Park Village when I visit my aunt. I think it was last Saturday he was singing, “ This little light of mine”! What a joy he was.

My heart shares your grief . . . so much in such a short time. My Mother worked with your Father & always had such kind things to say about him. I always remember him with a smile & a friendly hello. He had a way of making a person laugh when they didn't feel like it. Praying God gives you comfort as you travel this path of grief. May your burdens be lessened by warm memories & stories that are shared at this time. Caring, Ella Marshall
