  1. Dearest Norma and Family,

    My husband Rick and I want to extend our most heartfelt condolences to you and to your family. When you called me on Saturday, I was so very sad to hear of Ricky passing on Friday as we were just there on Thursday afternoon and spoke with him for a little bit, he looked really good and seemed so happy and full of life. Such a kind, generous gentleman he always was.

    May the constant love of caring friends soften your sadness.
    May cherished memories bring you moments of comfort.
    May lasting peace surround your grieving heart always.
    May God Bless you and your family always.

    Love and Friendship to you and your Family Always,

    Jan and Rick Irvin

Look back on all these good memories you were able to have and smile at the fact that you were able to share these beautiful gifts with each other. My heart and prayers go out to you and your family.
    John 11:25-26 – Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in Me will live; even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in Me will never die.”
