Send Condolence

Our hearts, thoughts and prayers are with you, your brother and your family, and we send you our profound condolences and sympathies. Please know that we are with you in spirit as well as in sadness. We have no doubt that you were a source of great pride and joy for your Mother. Indeed, she could have no greater legacy nor more incredible a tribute than you and your brother. While there are no words or sentiments Louise and I can offer that will hasten or lessen the sadness of your spirit, we hope you will be able to take solace in those special memories that will forever have a place in your heart. It is these memories, as well as the comfort of your family and closest friends, that will enable you to endure the darkness until the clouds part and the sun shines once again. Our Heartfelt Condolences & Sympathies
