    my deepest sympathy to you and your family. May God comfort you during this time. Being human, we are selfish and want our loved ones here with us. But we know they are in a far better place than we are, with no pain, sorrow or worry. And some day we will see them again.

    Darin and family,
    I’m so sorry about your loss. I only met him a few times, but he had a great sense of humor
    and was so nice. What a relief that he won’t have to suffer anymore.
    My prayers are with you during this difficult time.

    Donna & family,
    I am so sorry to hear of Don’s passing. I hate to think another of our Fayetteville High School Class of 1955
    has slipped away for us. Death can steel our loved ones away from us but never take the memories that will warm your hearts in the days to come.
    Sincerely, Katie Day McCoy
