I would like to express my sincere condolences. The Bible is a great source of encouragement during times like this. May the "God of all comfort"
(2 Corinthians 1:3) comfort you.

Please accept our condolences on the passing of Mr. Lake. It was an honor to have known such a great man. It's already sad for us not seeing him working in his yard. He will truly be missed. May God embrace and comfort you during this most difficult time.
The Caldwell's, Moaney's and Scott's
