Dear Deborah and Steve,
I am sorry to learn of the death of your mother Lou. Throughout the years, Harold always enjoyed visiting with Lou. She and Harold were born in the same year and Harold was always very fond of Norris and Lou.
May you find comfort in knowing that Lou is now rejoicing with Jesus and all the deceased members of the Earley Family.
I'm sending up prayers for you and all your children and your grandchildren.
Sorry I cannot come to the funeral (I explained this to Deborah).
In memory of Lou, I am sending a donation to Hospice of the Carolinas.
Love you, Rachel Earley
