To the Medders Family
It is with heavy hearts that we send our condolences for the loss of a Great Man, HB.
We know too well what the loss of a dear loved one means and how it affects the entire family. We send our thoughts and prayers for Norma Jean, Debbie, Hanny, and Memorie and all of your families in this time of sorrow. We know the mind wants to know why, but the heart knows that this is a time to rejoice in the fact that we all know that HB is with other loved ones in heaven that have gone before him. There is a new resident for the Boyle Baptist group in heaven. I know that he has been welcomed with open arms and is at peace now. HB was a great provider for his family and a friend to all who knew him.
Love always to you all.
