“My thoughts and prayers are with your family at this time. Betty was one of my favorite riders when I ran the cab service in Spencer. We shared many a great conversation. And we also shared the same birthday which she and I always cherished. She was a great person to know I will miss her

“Dear Thomas family,
I'd like to express my condolence and deep regrets for your loss and share where I found help at such a time as this when I lost my entire family to our enemy death. I found comfort and hope in what I read in Jehovah Gods word the Bible at John5:28,29 there we're told we'll see our love ones again in the resurrection when Jesus brings them back here on earth and at Isaiah25:8 we're told that this enemy death will be gone forever. I wanted to share this with you now when hope and comfort is needed hoping that this will help you also in some way for this is my purpose in sharing this with you at this time and please know that I do share your grief and hope you'll feel free to let me know if this helped. I hope to hear from you. Sincerely, GM”
