Preceding him in death are his mother and father, the late Hattie Whitehurst and Nathan Ernest Winslow, Sr.; two brothers, Ernest and Tom Winslow, and one sister, Sarah Winslow Bond.

Pat and Sarah,

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I was at the hospital with Randy and did not know until I pulled up facebook out of the blue. Had not been on facebook in months. I was so very shocked. My heart goes out to both of you and the rest fo the family. Please know that I think you often. Feel free to call me at anytime if you ever feel like just talking. I am here for you and love you all dearly. Jack will be truly missed but I thank the Lord to have known him. He was a special man.

Ms. Pat,

You and your family will be in my prayers. I trust the peace and love of God to reside with you. While I am sorry for your loss, I am grateful God allowed me to be there and present with you and Mr. Winslow as he transitioned into eternal rest in such a peaceful way. The love was so evident in the room as you all shared stories and you loved him and talked to him as you brushed his hair.

Blessings, grace, and peace,

Dear Pat and family,

You have my deepest sympathy at the loss of your loved one. I often think of you folks as I go about life and reflecting the joyful times that were shared in taking our trips abroad to China, South America, Australia and New Zealand. I regret that I have not been able to stay in touch with all those many friends. May God give you comfort at this time of loss.

This day is remembered and quietly kept,

No words are needed, we shall never forget,

For those we love don’t go away,

They walk beside us every day.

Unseen and unheard, but always near,

So loved, so missed, and so very dear.
