    Good byes are not forever, goodbyes are not the end, they simply mean I’ll miss you until we meet again. “Although it's difficult today to see beyond the sorrow, may looking back in memory help comfort you tomorrow.” -(Author Unknown) My heart is heavy and filled with so much sadness as I bid farewell to my good friend but this is only temporary because I know I will see him again. Extending our deepest sympathy and prayers in this time of bereavement and loss hoping that comfort and peace may come to you soon. Prince and Esther Brown and Family
