01 Tickets

02 Card of Thanks

Perhaps you sent a lovely card, or sat quietly in a chair; Perhaps you sent beautiful flowers, if so, we saw them there. Perhaps you sent or spoke kind words, as any friend could say; Perhaps you were not there at all, just thought of us that day. What ever you did to console the heart, We thank you so much, what ever the part. The family of Ernie Bloxsom. (5/1)
