Ann and family,
My prayers are with all of you at this difficult time. Take time to grief and hold each other tighter as you share all the wonderful memories shared together. Life is never easy but with the love you each shared with your husband, father, father in law and grandfather you will make it. The road ahead is hard but love from God and your family and friends will help you along the way. Prayers, Dale Taylor Bagwell
