To the Cartwright Family:

I was sorry to hear about the passing of your loved one. 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? Or is 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,

I can't find the words to express the meaning that you put in my life a many times but even your hard words were so kind and now we're here it's hard to say good by so until I see you again I'll just say farewell. RIP Mom
