We are very sorry to hear of Mr. Mosley’s passing. I always admired him for his kindness and intelegent manner and fairness in bussiness. It was alway a pleasure to see him when we were in town and had the opportunity. It seems a great void for him to no longer be with us but heaven has gained a great man. I am sure he will be greatly missed and sorry we could not be there for the services as we were out of town visitng our daughter but our thoughts were also with you and your family.
