"We grew up in Berea with each of you and went our many ways. You lived in the house I grew up in. Your Dad and mine were about the same age and were good friends. Daddy died in January 1994. Harry Humphries
You are very fortunate to have had yours with you for so many more years. You'll all be in my thoughts and prayers."
"Dear Adcock family, I am sorry for your pain, and loss. I would like to share with you something that has given many comfort at a time like this. You can find real comfort in what God has promised, such as in John 5:28,29 -He promises that he is going to resurrect all those who have ever died, back to life again here on earth. And all the things that cause us sorrow, pain, and even death, will be gone forever. You can read about this in Revelation 21:3,4, and 1 Corinthians 15:26."
"Our thoughts and prayers and may God Bless the Adcock family during this time of sadness."
"God Bless the family and friends in the loss of this love one. Gone to rest no pain all is well, God is good. Be strong and your days will be long, life is always good."
