Dear Ellen Smith Family and Lewis Family.
What a shock! I had no idea that Michelle was ill. Please know that you and your family are in my prayers. It is sad we haven't kept in touch. You were always a special friend (co-worker). We had a great family then.
You are in our prayers and thoughts. May Our God give you comfort at this time of loss. Matthew 5:4 says, "Blessed are those that mourn for they shall be comforted." May His loving arms surround you and give you peace. God bless each of you. Call me sometime.
In Christ Love,
Mildred and Janet Lockstampfor (co-worker @ Food Lion)

Dear Lewis Family,
I am an old friend of Sheila's from middle and high school. We shared many classes together throughout high school. I'm sorry we didn't keep in touch through the years. She was such a wonderful and friendly person back then I can just imagine she grew into a loving and kind adult. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this time of loss.

Chuck & Girls,
I don't know what to say. My heart is so sad to hear of your loss. I had the pleasure of getting to know Michelle working with her at SF. She was a great person and was always so sweet. She loved her family more than anything in this world. She will be greatly missed.

Come, Ye Disconsolate

Words by Thomas Moore; alt. by Thomas Hastings
Music by Samuel Webbe

Come, ye disconsolate, where'er ye languish.
Come to the mercy seat, fervently kneel.
Here bring your wounded hearts, here tell your anguish;
Earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal.

Joy of the desolate, light of the straying,
Hope of the penitent, fadeless and pure!
Here speaks the Comforter, tenderly saying,
"Earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot cure."

Here see the bread of life; waters flowing
Forth from the throne of God, pure from above.
Come to the feast of love; come, ever knowing
Earth has no sorrow but heaven can remove.
