CondolencesJack, Helen, and family,
Sorry to hear about your mother's death. I know it is hard to let them go in this life but we know they are finally at home. I lost my mom this pass August and dad 14 months before that. It has been hard especially during the holidays. But one day we will be reunited again never to part again. My prayers are with you and your family. Sorry, I could not make it to the funeral home but was remembering your family during this time.

Our hearts wre truly touched when we learned of our dear sister'passing.So many years and so many precious memories too numerous to count.With this message we are reminded of many promising scriptures from our precious Lord and Saviour. One particular passage was one we heard quoted so many times during our years together "Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints". Truly one of his saints has gone home to be with him.We're glad also that to us who have this hope and are alive and remain shall one day enter into that great day of eternal rest. So from our family to your's remember there is a brighter day. Jack,Helen and your entire family we love you and long for that day when we'll once again be united with all of His children in that eternal land of promise. We,as always have you in our prayers.

Johnny, you and your family have been a special asset to our family for years. I hope you know how special you have been to the Herron's through these years and, also, that you know that your family is being prayed for during this trying time. We know where your Mom is and I have tears of joy, but it is hard to give anyone up, no matter their age, health conditions, etc. Our family treasures our friendship and your continued love for all of us. You will never be forgotten.
Tell Jack and Helen that Mitchell Ralph and Wilma Crawford send their love and prayers for them. They talked on the phone the other night, but I don't think they will be able to come to the funeral. Wilma will try to get a sitter for Ralph and maybe she can come with me.
If we can do anything for you all, just let us know. We WILL be there for you.
