  1. John 14 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, also believe in me. In my Father€™s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you, I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am there ye may also be. And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.

  2. May the memories held deep within your heart help to soothe your spirit at this difficult time. You are in our prayers.

  3. May beautiful memories give you strength at this difficult time. With Sympathy, Kathy, Brian & Chris Pittman

  4. To The Fischer Family: I am truly going to miss talking to your Dad when I do my usual walk passing his home. He was such a wonderful man and I enjoyed talking to him. My deepest condolences to all of you.
