    I was saddened to hear of your loss of a true gentleman and family member. I send my condolences especially in memory of Carole. He was dearly loved by her and we can now rest in the peace of knowing they are now together in a much better place, healed of all sickness and pain. My prayers are with you all. May God richly bless you for taking such good care of him through his last years. He was surely a blessed man.
