To Terri and her family: I am so sorry to hear of your dad’s passing. I would have come to pay my respects, but am out of state at present. My parents thought so much of both your parents. I am sure they are all having a wonderful reunion up in heaven. I am keeping your dad and your family in my prayers.

My deepest sympathy with the passing of your loving father, Terri, to you and your family. I was so happy to get to visit with him enjoying his sense of humor and quick wit. He amazed me with how he was active and got around so well. Listening to the music on the collage video and seeing how social he remained throughout his life, I could imagine him playing the guitar or banjo, or dancing as the life of the party. Terri, I see where you inherited your enthusiasm, positive attitude and keen sense of humor. Your message to your dad was what I can imagine you saying to him many times throughout your life. Thurmond left a very special impression on those who were privileged to know were blessed to have him as your father. He will be watching over you from Heaven and beaming with his kind smile...knowing he passed on his love and caring ways to you.

I am really sorry for your loss. The death of a loved one is one of the most difficult things we can go through. For me, family and “the God of all comfort,” as the Bible puts it, have helped me during times like this. I hope you are able to find comfort as well.
