Your warm welcome and Mr. Davis's kind and dignified presence have made our street not merely an address but a neighborhood. Our thoughts and prayers are with you, Jackie, Diane, John Jr., and all of your loved ones during this time of loss.

To the Davis Family:

I was sorry to hear about the passing of your loved ones. Death is liken to a thief that comes and takes away our love ones. Or due to old age and sickness we lose that precious quality of life that leads to death.

However, have you ever asked: Is death the end of it all? Oris there something else after death? The bible clears up any question we might have about death. It also shows that there is a real hope for persons who have faith.

Yours truly,
