Please accept our most heartfelt sympathies for your loss. . . our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.
I grieve with you over the passing of your family member. Daryl and I were best friends for many years. We worked together and we were involved in leisure activities together. My fondest memories are going on day trips to visit Civil War sites and learning so much history from him. He was one of the smartest people I ever knew. My family and I loved him as though he were a member of our own family and indeed he was included in all of our family activities. I am going to miss him much as I miss my own brother. In many ways we were as close as brothers. Rest in peace my great and only best friend. You are now in paradise, but your memory will never leave the hearts of my family and myself. I look forward to seeing you again in heaven.
