I’m so sorry for your loss.
Wade and I were planning on being at the funeral. We started out at 10:30am and drove about 25 miles but driving conditions were so bad we had to turn around. We are not so young any more so with the weather, fog and holiday traffic we were just afraid to try it. I was so sorry when I received the news. Lenelle was a very special person to me.She and Ed came to all our family weddings and funeral without fail. She and Cathy visited my mother often during her latter years after she came to Durham. Thank you so much for making sure I knew of her death, I will write Ed also since I have his address.
Dear Frank & Family.
We have been out of place and just found out about the loss of your mother.
May God comfort and keep you and your family in the hollow of his hand in the days ahead, as you go thru the Christmas Season and beyond. Love in Christ, Bob and Rose
