Kitty, Boyd and extended family members,
We just learned this morning about Seslies passing. There are no words to offer that will let you know how sorry we are for the loss of your beautiful daughter, sister, partner, mother and friend. Having lost a son ourselves, we can relate to the emptiness your hearts feel right now. I wish we could be with you to give you a hug and let you know how much you are loved. Seslie fought a good fight. In the Bible, 2nd Timothy, Chapter 4, Verse 7 says I have fought the good fight, I have finished the course, I have kept the faith. May the loving arms of our Heavenly Father hold you close in infuse your hearts with the peace and comfort only He can give. Remember that Ses is with Him and her suffering has ceased. We love you all so very much.
Frank Anita ThompsonBaton Rouge, LA
Chad I wish you, and your family my deepest condolences. May God bless, comfort, and strengthen each of you during this time of sorrow.
Tiffany BrownLancaster, TX
To all who knew and loved Ses, we send our heartfelt prayers for your sorrows.
I wasnt close to Ses through her suffering, but daily lifted her for healing.
Kitty, I cannot imagine the pain of your loss, but I am so happy that you were able to grow with Ses through it all. What a special gift God gave you in order for you to make the journey with her every step of the way.
She left her mark on many and was loved by every one.
Please let me know if there is anything I can do. Sometimes simply listening is enough.
Love you all,

A butterfly lights beside us like a sunbeam
And for a brief moment its glory
and beauty belong to our world
But then it flies again
And though we wish it could have stayed...
We feel lucky to have seen it.
