    Dear Len and Cathy.
    I wish to offer my deepest condolences on the loss of your father (my Uncle Jim). I know how dedicated he was to your mother when she was going through her illness and I am told that you were equally dedicated to your father during his illness. It must be very difficult to lose both your parents in such a short period of time. Mom (Kay Sulley) also sends along her deepest condolences. You are in our prayers today and we will be praying with you as you attend his funeral service this afternoon. God Bless. Sharon and Aunt Kay.

  5. Dear Cathy, Len and family,
    I just heard of your Dad’s passing. I am so sorry for your loss. I know it has been years since we have seen each other, but sometimes it seems like yesterday. I have such fond memories of the years our families spent together growing up. I trust you have the love and support of family and friends to help you find comfort through the holidays and for the future. I will miss my Auntie Vi and Uncle Jim.
    Your friend always, Wayne

    Len and Cathy …I am so sorry to read the passing of your mom and dad. A good friend of mine was telling me how to look up people so I was actually looking you up and came across this site for your dad… I know you will never see this but I was sad to see you have lost both your parents and wanted to send my condolences.
