"Dear family, This is Glady's daughter Helen.  I just want you to know how sorry I am for your loss. I loved Ilean and she was so kind to me and my family when we had to be at Duke Hospital with Misty.  In fact, the whole family was so good to us-sharing your home, food, visiting and bringing food to us at the hospital.  I wish we could have seen all of you more. Prayers for comfort and strength through this time.  What a beautiful reunion they are all having in heaven! God bless you!"

"Dear Autrey 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."

"To the family....I'm so sorry for your loss and what a big loss it is. She was one of the sweetest women I had ever had the pleasure of knowing. She took me in over 40 years ago as one of her own and I'm so sorry that I slipped out of her life. I know she is celebrating with your daddy and what a reunion that was. I know she will rest in peace. No more suffering, No more pain. Praying for you all."
