Condolence & Memory Journal

My Dear Phyllis, I was so sorry to learn of your loss and like you said Ernie's job is not done yet. He is just working on the other side. He life has been nothing short of a miracle and he was very smart to marry an angel such as yourself. Only God Himself knows how many people's lives are better for having known the two of you. May God give you what you need again today. You will continue to be in my prayers as you adjust to this new way of life. Love you. Nadine Dias of Norwich CT.
