Stanton, Stan, Lynne,

I am so saddened by your loss of beautiful Belle. This dear lady was such a sweet, kind, and helpful friend to me while I worked in the Farm Bureau office. I will never forget her or any of you. I watched and cried over the beautiful family pictures. Life is so short! Praises to God that it doesn't end here.

We the Messenger Family sends to you our deepest sympathy. Please find solace from 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4: Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those in any sort of tribulation through the comfort with which we ourselves are being comforted by God. We are so sorry for your loss.
