Charles and Patricia, my sincere condolences for the loss of your dear son. There is no greater pain than the loss of a child. I too lost my son at 49 years old. Time will dull the pain and fond memories will bring some joy. Cherish your memories and share them with Ella. May God be with you and strengthen you. Put hope in God’s promise to see our dear loved ones again at John 5:28,29.
B.J. Williams, neighbor
