    Wayne, Kristen, Kasey, and family,
    We send our sympathy in the loss of someone so dear to you. Although it’s been five years since we saw Ann at my mom’s service, it seems she was a trooper in dealing with MS and making the best of it. I could tell she loved and enjoyed her family with all her heart. I have happy memories of our times together in Tully, Cortland, Williamsville, and Ocean City. She was always a lot of fun and full of spunk! Our prayers to all of you in your loss. May Ann rest well in her heavenly home! Love, Sue

    To the Family of Mrs. Smith: I read of the loss of your dear loved one, and I would like to extend my condolences. May your hearts find comfort in God’s wonderful promises for the near future (Isaiah 33:24; Revelation 21:4-6). Until then, may your cherished memories of Mrs. Smith strengthen and comfort you to cope with the difficult days ahead (Philippians 4:6,7,13). Respectfully, F. Colquitt

    We are so saddened about your loss, but know that she is in a beautiful place surrounded by beautiful angels.

    “I cannot know the pain you feel.
    I cannot share your memories or your loss.
    My words of sympathy are beneath measure, yet
    know that my heart reaches out with love to your heart.”
    – Jonathan Lockwood Huie
