Condolences for the family of “Cicero King”

Condolence from Meryl on March 27th, 2015 3:03 pm

I am very sorry to hear of the loss of Mr. King. I imagine he was an amazing man. I won’t pretend to know what you’re going through, but what has helped me deal with the loss of those I love is turning to the Scriptures, something that has been a real source of comfort. One Scripture that gives me hope is Job 14:14, 15, which says, “If a man dies, can he live again? You will call, and I will answer you. You will long for the work of your hands.” I hope that this verse will also comfort you and, I hope you and your family can get through this difficult time. Please accept my condolences for the loss of your beloved father. Sincerely, Meryl

Condolence from Amalia Morton on March 28th, 2015 3:31 pm

What moves through us is a silence, a quiet sadness, a longing for one more day, one more word, one more touch, we may not understand why you left this earth so soon, or why you left before we were ready to say goodbye, but little by little, we begin to remember not just that you died, but that you lived. And that your life gave us memories too beautiful too forget.

Love always,
Willie, Amalia Morton and the Zafra family
