With deepest, deepest sympathty. Saw L.M. at the dedication of LaGrange Training School as a historic site last year where he went to grade school. It was a pleasure to meet his father in May near Glasgow. God be with you until you meet again.

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Recently I lost my dear mother, and found great
comfort in the words of Jesus at John 11:11-14, where he likens death to being
asleep, and at John 5:2,29 - "All those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice
and come out." For more, I turn to the website: (Search: Comfort)
