    Helen and Family,
    How I’ve wanted to be there for you ever since Al passed. It’s a difficult time now even though we know that Al is safe with Jesus. It’s we who are left behind that must adjust. Jesus is there for you during this time too. We thank the Lord first and foremost for the length of live and happiness of days Al was given. You, his family, will have many, many memories to hold onto.
    My heart is with you in prayer.
    Love, Catherine
