Post a Condolence

Your friendly smile and your kind neighborly manner will be truly missed. I am so sorry for the loss of this kind man who tried to help me learn his native language. You will be missed riding your tractor and planting your garden. You have left a wonderful legacy with your family. They have been blessed and so have I by sharing your life with us.
