    I’d like to express my sympathy to all of you. Many years ago I was friends with “Momma Jo” and Ellie and often have thought of your family. May you find comfort in knowing your loved one is now in the hands of God and we will see them again one day. Please pass along my condolances to the rest of the family. Peace be with you.
