Dear Al & Family,
I'm so sorry for the heartache and sorrow you must be reeling under at this time. At the same time...I'm rejoicing in the fact that Twila has finally and joyfully arrived at her eternal home in Heaven. I rejoice also, in the knowlege that although we have now been seperated for a moment in time...we can rest assured that we will see her again when we ourselves experience that final call to leave this earth and enter into the presence of God in Heaven. Until then...may the Lord comfort, strengthen, and guide you through this time of sorrow and beyond. I love you dearly and deeply. Rest in peace, dear Twila...until we meet again. Finally...I often find comfort in someth that Bill Gaither once said..."If they are with God...and God is with us...then they can't be far away."Read more

Dear Al,
I am so sorry to hear about the loss of Twila. She was a very special lady with the kindest soul. I'm sure your heart is broken. You and Twila were great parents who raised a very sweet son. Praying for peace for all of you and your boys.

Rest in peace, Twila.
