    I am very sorry to hear of the loss of Mr. Ledford. I won’t pretend to know what you’re going through, but what has helped me deal with the loss of those I love is turning to the Scriptures, something that has been a real source of comfort. One Scripture that gives me hope is Isaiah 26:19, which says, “Your dead will live… Awake and shout joyfully, you residents in the dust! For your dew is as the dew of the morning, and the earth will let those powerless in death come to life.” I hope that this verse will also comfort you; and I hope you and your family can get through this difficult time. Please accept my condolences for the loss of your beloved husband. Sincerely, Meryl.

    Dear Family,
    I will always have very happy memories of Glen, he was always so good to help my
    Dad when he had a break-down in the hay field. He always had a smile.

    We were so sorry to hear about Glen’s passing, but we know he is in a far better place with no problems at all. I remember his humor and his excitement when he took us to Eureka Springs to see a show. He was a sweet man, Ernestine. Love to you and your family.

    My family and I would like to express our deepest sympathy over the loss of Mr. Ledford.
    May you find comfort in your loving memories and the warmth of family and friends. I love the beautiful promise at Revelation 21:4 when death and pain will be gone forever after God restores his original purpose for the earth. We will even see our loved ones again who we have lost in death (John 5:28 & 29). It is our hope that these words bring you a measure of comfort during this difficult time. Once again, please accept our condolences as you deal with your loss.

    I was just reading the obituaries on the Beard Funeral Home website and discovered Mr. Ledford’s. I am so sorry for your loss. I remember him and your family when my dad, Dean Parrish, would hold gospel meetings at Tuttle. He was a very nice man. May you all be comforted by your precious memories of your husband, father, grandfather, and brother. My prayers are with you at this difficult time.
