Zelpha, words cannot describe how sorry we are. Together, you have raised an incredibly beautiful family, full of love for each other and for friends. The love you have given my family will carry you through your grief, and know we reciprocate that love to you all. Amanda and Melissa, you have always shown love for my kids, actually all kids… you have helped watch my kids, you helped teach my kids how to read and do math. Your love for others is the greatest gift your dad and mom could give you.
