    Dear Family, We would like to offer our heartfelt sympathy and condolences to the Pegram family on the passing of Mr. Pegram. We received word of the memorial service prior to the weekend, but we were on our way out of town for a family reunion. Being there would have meant a lot to us, so we apologize for not having the ability to attend. The family is in our thoughts and prayers, especially Matt, who is one of my oldest and dearest friends. Please have him contact me at his convenience at 910-253-3618, and leave his phone number on the answering machine. With Sympathy, Laura and Matthew Clark

    I wish to express my condolence for the loss of your love one. With hearts filled with grief and pain, please find comfort in the scripture found in the Bible at Revelation chapter 21, verse 4. It reads: And he(God) will wipe out every tear from their eyes and DEATH will be no more,neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be any more.The former things have passed away. It is very comforting to know that in the near future, we will never have to lose our love ones in death.
