Nana and Papa have raised an amazing family, one anyone would be proud to call themselves a part of. I loved Papa as if he were my own, and was always accepted at the Packett home. For that, I will always be grateful. Papa always put a smile on my face, regardless of what kind of day I was having before I walked into that house. I continue to remember the time I've been able to share with him and the conversations we've had. We've all been blessed to have known such a great man. I know he and his family have changed me forever. I love you, Papa. I'll be seeing you again someday..

Dear Nancy and Packett Family: There may not be any tears in heaven, but they flow freely here on earth. Jesus experienced it. When he wept over his friend Lazarus, he felt the pain you feel. He struggled with his emotions even though he knew the outcome would be good. The Lord knows all your questions and needs at this time. He will be with you through every step. He will comfort you. He will lead you. He will be with you. Praying the Lord's comfort tenderly surrounds you. With Heartfelt Sympathy and Love. Robert & Nancy Novotny. February 22, 2010
