    Danny, Cara, Cassie,Chris, Andy and Kids our family is sorry for your loss. Danny , Im so appreciative of you and Janie always praying for me and my family. It has meant the world to me. The soft spoken “We are praying for you ” whispered in my ear by You and Janie were angels on earth comforting my worn and frazzeld body when sometimes it was all I could do was keep telling myself to “put one foot in front of the other then repeat…”. Janie, you have your wings and your whispers of caring encouraging words will be as clear and sweet as ever. You may be in God’s hands and but you will always be in our hearts. Cara and Cassie, the beauty of Gods world can be seen because all his works have unseen roots. Your Mother gave you Love, Devotion and Kindness ” your roots” for who you are. Praise God for the cherished time he allowed us to be in her presence.
