Post a Condolence

I am very SORRY to hear about the passing of Larry.
I was delivering to Kaden Precision when I found out about his passing.
I was deeply shocked finding out about his passing.
He looked like he was full of life getting everything in order fixing up the house buying a new car and taking care of business and looked like he was happy.
He will be missed.
I have included him in our prayer chain for the Repose of his soul.
My family and I are very SORRY for your lost.
