Mary on Jul 27, 2018

To the Sandersfeld family, my heartfelt condolences for your loss of your loved one. As you cope with your loss, may you find comfort in knowing that God promises to put an end to all the things that have plagued mankind for centuries including pain and death (Rev 21:3,4). May these promises from God's word, the Bible give you comfort now and real hope for the future. My deepest sympathy.

David and Steve-I remember seeing your dad at your activities years ago when we were in high school in Williamsburg. I know he was proud of you. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Take care God is with you! Margaret Watkins Fett
