Thank you everyone for the many expressions of kindness, support and love you have shown to us during this period of bereavement for our family. It has been a comforting blessing to each of us. 

God bless you all for your acts of kindness and expressions of sympathy in our great loss. We sincerely appreciate the token of love you have provided and means so much to our family.

The family would like to tale this opportunity to express our sincerest appreciation for the thoughtfulness presented to us and love we have been given during our time of bereavement.  May God Bless You!

We deeply appreciate your kind expression of sympathy in our time of great sorrow. Thank you for keeping us in your thoughts and prayers.

Perhaps you sent a lovely card, 
or sat quietly in a chair.
Perhaps you sent those beautiful flowers,
 that we saw sitting there.
Perhaps you spoke the kindest words,
 as any friend could say.
Perhaps you were not there at all, 
just thought of us that day.
Whatever you did to console our hearts
we thank you so much for whatever part.

–The Jones Family
