  1. Please accept my sincere sympathies in the passing of Davis. My thoughts and prayers are with his wife Alice, his children, family, and all those so close to him while in life. As you mourn, and while I have no words to console your loss in my heart I am with you during this difficult time. May these words of sympathy help comfort you today. May his memory be for a blessing for generation to generations to come.
