You held my hand as a child. But you hold my heart forever. My heart aches because you left us. But I know you are at last happy again. All my love forever...your son Jimmy.

James Rose

My sincere condolences goes out to the family during this difficult time. May you find a measure of comfort in God's promise at Revelation 21:3,4 where we look forward to a time when there will be no more pain and death any more.
