Dear Carol and family, Please know that you are in the thoughts and prayers of so many people at this time. It is never easy to have to say an earthly goodbye to someone we love, even when we know we will meet again in spirit. But it certainly can be a comfort knowing that your loved one has gone on to wait for you. In the days and weeks to come, there will be tears, shared memories, laughter, and a multitude of other emotions, and the love and support of dear friends and family will help see you though it all. I know that my parents, Stewart and Kay Taylor, will be rejoicing as they greet Allan in Heaven.
