    Dear Walker Family: We are very sad to have read about the loss of your loved one, William. Please accept our families sincere condolences. Words cannot remove the pain, but comfort is found in the Bible. Read Psalms 37:29. Revelation 21:4 says "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.May your family be comforted during this difficult time, In our thoughts and prayers

    Please accept my heartfelt condolences. It is always painful to lose a loved one. I too have lost many dear ones to death. In the Lord’s prayer.

[Psalm 37:29] I sincerely hope that these words serve as some comfort to you at this time. For further Scriptural encouragement visit
