    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 the 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 in the arms of God.

    "This world is not conclusion; a sequel stands beyond" is a quote from a card I received over forty years ago when my brother passed away. It was one of those sentiments that I put in my heart because I know that we will be together again, a hope that we've be given through faith in Jesus. I am praying that you get through this first part, so you can begin to look forward to the second part. I offer you my sincere condolences and pray you find comfort.

    As I sit in Heaven, and watch you every day,
    I try to let you know with signs, I never went away.
    I hear you when you're laughing, and watch you while you sleep,
    I even place my arms around you, to calm you as you weep.
    I see you wish the days away, begging to have me home,
    So I try to send you signs, so you know you are not alone.
    Don't feel guilty that you have life, that was denied to me,
    Heaven is truly beautiful, just you wait and see.
    So live your life, laugh again, enjoy yourself, be free,
    Then I know with every breath you take, you'll be taking one for me.
