With our love and deepest sympathy on the loss of one so dear. Our hearts go out to you.
Praying for you to be aware of the Lord's love surrounding you and comforting you. His presence is forever with you.
We admired and loved Henry as we do you as well, Eleanor. You both did all you could do as faithful servants of the Lord and each other.
He is now resting in the arms of Jesus.
With our love and blessings,
Norm and Betsy Triznadel
I guess that it is somehow appropriate that we just learned of this on Memorial Day. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
