Anna Mae, I am so deeply saddened to hear of the loss of your beloved husband.  I only met him a few times, and the ways your eyes lit up when talking of him, I know there is a gaping hole in your heart at his loss. I know it doesn't matter how many hugs I may want to give you, as a hug cannot replace half your heart, but you are in my prayers. Please keep your head up, sweetie- I know the world probably seems to have dropped out from under you right now, and that seems an insurmountable task. I'm here for you, I love you Anna Mae.

To the rest of the family, my deepest condolences.  May the Lord lift your spirits so you may celebrate this man's life to mourn his loss.  You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

Anna Mae and Family --- we didn't really know Jonah, but had seen him a few times years ago at the Pleasant Senior Center.  We know this is a sad time for you and just wanted you to know we are thinking of you and have you in our prayers.  God will take care of you.  In sympathy,  Ruth and Giles
