  1. I love you grandma Tootsie, I will see you again. I wish I would have been notified that you had passed on, but it happened and that can’t be changed. At least I found out before the service, so I can be there for you now. It would have been nice to give you a traditional native funeral, you would have loved it! I’m sorry about not making arrangements for you, because none of your 10 grandchildren, and 10 greatgrandbabies were mentioned.Sonny is excited to say goodbye to you, he’s just sad that you won’t be able to talk back to him. He misses you. I love and will see you soon!

  2. Dear LeClaire family, you all have my sympathy. The death of a loved one causes us deep pain. At Jeremiah 31:13, Almighty God has promised, “I will change their mourning into exultation. I will comfort them and give them joy instead of their grief.” No doubt you look forward to the fulfillment of that promise. Until then, you can fully rely on “the God of tender mercies and the God of all comfort” to give you the strength and endurance to cope during this difficult time. (2 Corinthians 1:3)
