Friends are Earthly blessings, responding and caring in moments of despair. Our family will forever be grateful for your friendship expressed in so many ways during the passing of our loved one. Your prayers, visits, calls, flowers, cards and other acts of love are sources of strength and consolation. Thank You, May God grant all of you his richest blessings.
