  1. Tom, Mike, Jeff and Tracie,
    I am so sorry for your wife, mother’s passing. She was a wonderful person and loved you all dearly, as well as her grand children. Know that she is in a better place and that you have people here that love and pray for you all. It was my honor to go stay with her in the hospital those few days. I could even feel the love as she lay there trying to get better. She is in God’s hands now.

  2. Tom, Mike, Jeff and Tracie,
    Our deepest sympathy and prayers, to the Family and Grandchildren. We have known Joan and Tom and Tracie for years and being our neighbor in the Bay Creek Subdivision. We will miss her and her lovely smile, meeting her on her regular walking the
    dogs daily. God bless and eternal rest we Pray….

  3. Tracie,
    I know how close you and your mom were. I was sorry to hear about her passing she was such a lovely, kind and good lady.

  4. I wish to express my deepest and sincerest condolences to the family. Words alone cannot ease the pain when grieving the loss of a love one. The Bible provides comfort during these difficult times. Revelation 21:3-4 states, “And he(GOD) will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away”. May God give you comfort in your loving memories and in His promise that soon we will never experience losing our love ones we will be able to see them again once they are resurrected John 5:28-29. May these scriptures bring comfort and calmness of heart to you during the difficult days

  5. My precious brother, my heart breaks for you at this time. I know your hurt and I wish I could help you but I know that God is in control. You and Dawn shared so many happy times together and you will have such wonderful memories to draw on in the coming days and years. I love you.
