Condolence & Memory Journal

Please accept my heartfelt sympathy and prayers for your loss. We lived next door until our house burned. George and Rose were the best neighbors anyone could have. Even after we moved they were so good about visiting and encouraging during Bob's illness and death. They made the world a better place. I will continue prayers for Rose.
