I'm so sorry about Pudge, I like to think him and Larry are riding motorcycles together again. I'm so heartbroken Rene, for you and your family. Praying for peace and comfort for the days ahead.
Ours hearts and prayers go out for your loss. In the Earthly life, to lose a husband, father, friend and a granddaddy will be felt for years to come. May God strengthen family bonds, increase friendship fellowship and make His presence all the more felt in times of loneliness. And when habits lead anyone to think about Mr. Williams, may God grant comfort to those mourning. In Jesus name. Amen.
