  1. I am very sorry to hear of the loss of Mrs. Williams. I image she was an amazing woman. I won’t pretend to know what you’re going through, but what has helped me deal with the loss of those I love is turning to the Scriptures, something that has been a real source of comfort. One Scripture that gives me hope is John 11:25, which says, ” Jesus said to her: ‘I am the resurrection and the life. The one who exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life.” I hope that this verse will also comfort you and, I hope you and your family can get through this difficult time. Please accept my condolences for the loss of your beloved mother. Sincerely, Meryl

  2. Thinking of all of you at this most difficult time. Praying that all of the great family memories give you all comfort. May God hold both of your parents tightly in His loving arms and may all of you receive the blessings and graces to accept God’s will.

  3. Dear Neal and family,
    I was sorry to read of both your Parents passing.
    That we’re great.
    Your Mom was driving full time when I started as a sub driver for the district and she gave me many tips on how to do the job.
    She always had a smile that would put a person at ease.
    May God bless your whole family in the coming days, while you are saying goodbye and always.
    Linda Pitts
