It is a sad time when we have to deal with the loss of our dear family members. Please accept my condolences and you can be assured that our loving Heavenly Father is concerned about the pain that you are feeling. He has promised to help us during times such as these. Psalms 34:18 reads: “Jehovah is near to those that are broken hearted”
May the special times that you have had with your loved one stay close to your heart.

Shirley I am so sorry to hear about Francis. I ask Meredith about
you from time to time. I also like remembering some of our chats
while working at the Colesville branch. Please take care of you!

Dear Shirley, Francis and you were our dear next door neighbors for over 20 years and were so kind and precious to me, Hubert, and our 4 children. We have so many sweet memories of you both, especially coming over for Christmas morning coffee and enjoying Santa's visits. The children fondly remember Francis for the time he spent in his garden, and chatting with their father so often. May your loving memories of him bring you peace and comfort. We are praying for you.
