To the Sandefur Family I am sorry to learn of your loss. I can remember very vividly the sense of loss when my father passed away in 1972. God will take care of you and your family, as he always does. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Your cousin, Bob Gooding

He was a favorite of mine. When I spent summers at the farm, I remember being with him all day! He took us on tractor rides, never yelled- ever!!!, showed me how to milk cows- gave us silly “jobs” to make us think we were really helping... the list goes on and on! He was a very great man. I am relieved his pain is over but I too will miss him, his jokes, and his hugs. ?

When we were in elementary school Roy Gentry jumped into the deep end of the pool and couldn’t swim. Uncle Mark didn't hesitate to jump in, work boots and all, and pull him out. That is a perfect example of the man he was. I am going to miss his bear hugs something fierce.

Dear Sandefur family, I'd like to express my condolence and deep regrets for your loss and share where I found comfort and hope at a time such as this when I lost my entire family. I found this in what I read in Jehovah Gods word the Bible at John5:28,29 for there it tells us we'll see our love ones again at the resurrection when Jesus brings them back here on earth and we're told at ICorinthians15:54 that this enemy death will be gone forever. I'm able to cope with my loss and get through each day now because now I know I'll see my love ones again because of these scriptures and jw.org. I wanted to share this with you now when hope and comfort is needed hoping that this will help you also for this is my purpose in sharing this with you at this time and please know I do share your grief and hope you'll feel free to let me know if this helped in some way. I hope to hear from you. Sincerely, GM
