  4. My wife and I wish to extend our condolences on your loss.

    We stand with feet planted firmly on rich soil knowing what freedom is. Because of our veterans, I am free to honor God and country without persecution. Where there is injustice, I am free to fight. Where there is silence, I am free to speak. Where there is hate, I am free to love.

    Your love one’s watch is over, may they rest peacefully in the arms of God.

  5. From my family to yours we send our sincerest condolences. We pray that you may find piece and comfort in this time of sorrow. May God wrap you in his arms and comfort you in this time of sorrow

  6. Do not stand at my grave and weep
    I am not there.
    I do not sleep.
    I am a thousand winds that blow.
    I am the diamond glints on snow.
    I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
    I am the gentle autumn’s rain.
    When you awaken in the morning’s hush,
    I am the swift uplifting rush
    Of quiet birds in circled flight.
    I am the soft stars that shine at night.
    Do not stand at my grave and cry;
    I am not there.
    I did not die.

  7. My wife and I wish to extend our deepest sympathy for the loss of Hero Hoffmann. Rest in Peace. You will not be forgotten.
