    My condolences to the family of Ms. Jones on your recently lost who was a true and wonderful co-worker to me. I worked with her over the last few years and I enjoyed every minute of our time working together. She was always talking about her family and how proud she was of them. Her humor, our debates and conversations, and her great heart will truly be missed. “The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.” – Helen Keller

    My condolences go out especially to my daughter-in-law and my grandsons; then to the remaining family and friends. I’m so sorry for your loss and I pray that Jehovah will comfort you all now and in the future. Shelia has gained her chance for the resurrection hope that we all should be striving for. She definitely will be missed. However, I do believe Jehovah’s promises. Therefore I know it’s not goodbye. I’ll just say I’ll see you on Jehovah’s time. Family and friends be encouraged.

    Dear Sheila It is taking a lot for me to write this because of the hurt I have I miss you much in many ways and for me to say or write I love you does not carry the weight it once did what I am saying its a major part of my life happiness has left me I can hear you say Yeah Right! If you recall, I told you on many occasions,the last person I would love to see is your eyes fixed on me in my last moment of life but here I am doing the worse job, not feeling or showing the hurt inside. I remember the first time I saw you walking down the hallway(Wow, look at that, oh my!) I wanted to make a move right then. I held up and took my time so to watch you from a distance for about 3 weeks(you called that stalking)well maybe, it was time to make my move day1 I asked for envelopes and I got the look, like “What the heck?” I smiled, you didn’t smile back…day #2 Asked for memo book, this time, you looked at me more like, “ok, what’s up?” Day#3 Asked for paperclips…this time you smiled and I think you thought I was crazy or just funny looking well I do admit I am funny looking more so now than ever…Day#4Ask for an ink pen, now you had a much bigger smile on your face. So my day off was that Friday, I gave you the weekend off. Monday, I had rehearsed my lines, the pros…the cons. Wednesday was the big day! I rolled up in your office and ask you what time it was. I think you said it was 10:30, then I said you were being so good to put up with me that I should ask you for a date and you said I, was not getting any younger What!!? Ok! Friday and you said, OK! before you knew it I whip out yellow tab with my phone# on it. Next day I asked, “We good right?” You said noooo and I said all stop! You’re not getting out of this. You must have figured I set you up. Later, we had a good time on that date. I still believe that I was the one in the trap, but who cares, I just wanted to be with you. My Butter Butt! and then I caught loving hell from you, Smile!!! P.S. I still should have called the cops on you for the way you would get on me. I did not get back up from your second son!:) smile. Love You Always! Larry / Uncle Ben. May you R.I.P. GOD GOT YOU!
