    For Doris "C" from Doris "K"
    Words of Comfort:
    There are things that we don’t want to happen but have to accept, things we don’t want to know but have to learn, and people we can’t live without but have to let go. " ~Author Unknown

    I wanted to share this quote, and some thoughts, for Doris’ family, for all of Mr. Castlebury’s family and for his friends everywhere.

    Raymond Castlebury is so Special, to so many, and I know he must have touched so many people’s lives in a way they probably never imagined. He was a very special person to so many people he befriended.
    Remember the laughter and the big smiles. Remember his everyday approach to life, his generosity, his personality, his ways with people will be remembered and will remain a real example for me and you. At the end of the day, it is the time with family and friends that meant the most.
    This is the blessing that will be cherished in memories. I know he will be dearly missed!

    For all who are suffering,
    Tenderly, may God’s love heal your sorrow.
    Gently, may the prayers of friends ease your hurting.
    Softly, may God’s peace replace your heartache with warm and loving memories.
