Ms. Betsy Coltrian and family, I was most sorry to hear of the passing of your mom and love one. Words are hard to express the deep sympathy that your friends and I have for you and your family. Please be encouraged in knowing that those that are asleep in the Lord rest from their labor and enter into their enternal rewards.
Betsy Coltrain and Family,
I send my deepest regrets that I will not be able to attend the graveside service due to prior engagements, however, you will be, as you have been, in my prayers. May God continue to bless you with the sweet memories of your mother’s legacy.
