    Our prayers and thoughts are with you today and the days ahead. We were so blessed knowing Kathy and God so blessed you to be able to share life with such a beautiful and caring person. In days such as these we so don’t understand God’s blueprint for each of our lives;when he creates us and when he chooses to bring us home. You and Kathy always followed God’s will and His will continues.
    Always know Kathy is in His loving arms and you too will share those arms with her someday. We all love you!!

  7. God Bless you all. Faith will get you through anything.

    Our hearts, thoughts, and prayers go out to you and you family during this difficult time. I hope knowing that your Christian brothers and sisters are in prayer for you brings some comfort.

  10. My Dearest Kathy,

    Thank you for 41 wonderful years together. As I think back, I remember the dreams we had as we listened to the Carpenters sing "We’ve only just begun". Even though we were not able to have children of our own, we helped raise a few like our niece and nephew, Tracey and Justin, the Arthur boys (Mike, Scott & Kyle) and Byran Rainey in Sweetwater. I was always very proud of you as my wife. Even though we will be apart on your birthday coming up, I will remember. I’m so glad that you are not in pain in any way. Until we meet again, I will always love you.

    Your Loving Husband,

  11. Joe Tom…just wanted to let you know that Phil and I are
    really praying for you "for the peace which passes all understanding". May God grant you complete peace and we’re grateful we will see Kathy in Heaven. God bless you.
