We are very sorry for the lost of your love one. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. If you need anything, please let us know. James, we are so sorry.
We are sorry that we didn't get to make it to the services but I was feeling bad and my parents were not feeling good either. James, Robin wanted to be there but her father-in-law passed away earlier today.
Just remeber that we are thinking of you and your family through these times.
