I just heard last night about Mr. Bright passing. I want to pass on my condolences to you and your family. You know how I feel about both of you. God has a plan for us all and he doesn't make mistakes. Keep your hands in Gods hands and he'll see you through this. We'll all see each other again someday in heaven. I'll keep you all in my thoughts & prayers. Love you always.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this time. I am so very sorry for your loss. It was always so comforting to see you and your husband at church when we were able to attend before my Dad took ill and then passed two years ago. Your smile and kindness was always such a welcomed blessing. May you be comforted with loving thoughts of your husband. Please accept our deepest condolences.
Paula Corley and Family
