Family and friends you have my deepest sympathy. This is a difficult time for most. There are basic things that can help anyone get through the pain no matter what age, gender or religious beliefs. Many have been helped with the twelve basics or just a few. You can go to and get the basics with no cost ever. See the article “Help for those who grieve “ in the magazine section. Anyone can get help and comfort.

Tony and family,
Due to previously made travel plans we will not be able to celebrate Edna's homegoing. Edna always had a pleasant disposition and asked frequently about Courtney when she was active duty and then as she became a military spouse. Our prayers go out to all family members as her absence will leave a void. Our prayer is that as time passes you can recall the many happy times you shared and find joy and comfort in those. Blessings, Larry & Pat Bullock
