We know times are tough and will be that way for awhile. Just remember the time you had to spend with your husband and dad. Also remember he is no longer in pain or suffering. He has gone to heaven to see his family that has gone before him, and that the Lord obviously needed another person in his fire department. He will be missed but never forgotten and one day you will see him again.
Take care and God Bless. It's okay to cry iy's part of the healing process and good for the soul.
Love and deepest sympathy to your family.

Dear Kathryn & Children,
I am so sorry to learn of the passing of your beloved husband Gary, my younger brother Lonnie Marvin called to let me know. I knew Gary when I was a very young girl while living in Grover Hill back in the 1960's he was a wonderful young man and I always thought he was a special person and his family were wonderful as well. I pray that God will keep you in his loving comfort and help you through your time of need. I had not seen Gary for many years but thought of him and his family from time to time. I did not know you but I'm sure he picked a special person to marry.
Wishing you all of Gods best.
