  1. Praise God from whom all blessings flow. Let not your heart be troubled. If you believe in God believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions. Buttercup, Robert has gone to a better home that Jesus has prepared for him. I know you will miss him, but remember that God is too kind and wise to make a mistake. Have comfort in the thought that not only you will miss him but all of his loved ones will miss him too. Be strong in the Lord. God will see you through all your tribulations. Love Cousin Henry

  2. To Cousin Vera (Buttercup) We extend our heartfelt sympathy to you and the family. May God continue to watch over you and your family. God is only a prayer away. We love you and will keep you in our prayers. Love, Agnes V. Murphy & Henrietta (Sang) Wiggins.
