  4. Our prayers are with you Kari,as well as with Theresa, David and your dads sisters. There are so many fond memories for me and my girls spending time with your family. Especially the time when we lived here in Sulphur and we went trick or treating and Angelia was pippy long stocking, and Alicia had to be different she wanted to have a mask and costume and your were a princess i believe it was. We were going up to this house and this man came running out with a chain saw dressed like the guy in the movie.

  6. Teresa, David, and Keri, I am so sorry for your loss, my heart aches for all three of you. He was a good man, I pray that he knows just how much the three of you loved him, and I pray that your guardian angels fold their wings around each of you during this time, and protect you, and know that you are loved. May he now be at peace, no more pain, no more anguish, and no heavily saddened heart. Heaven is a better place today, because he is there, and it will be a brighter place with one more star to shine from him, look for that star in the sky, the bightest one, and you will know he is there with you.
