And that is what we should do now is to think of all the funny stuff hes done to us and the pranks he and i pulled on each other. He was also very good to work with and I really miss that.

    Our Cherished Griffis Family,
    Your sorrow is in our heart. We share this huge loss with all of you. Although we have been away a long time, the happy memories of the good times we shared are still vivid and real in our minds .The anniversary and tail gate parties, Motown concerts , so many fun evenings at each others homes, just enjoying being together, as well as the spiritual inter- change of encouragement that brought us even closer to one another and to our God. We will never ever forget Carl until the day when we are all reunited on a cleansed New Earth of Jehovah’s making.
    Sending our love and heartfelt sympathy from across the miles to you all.

    Dear Bonnie and Family,
    We are thinking of all of you at this time and want you to know how much Carl and you and the rest of your family mean to us. There are no words that could express the loss we feel in our hearts. How we look forward to the promise that is in Revelation 21: 4 “And he will wipe out every tear from there eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” We send our love and sympathy to all of you.

    Dad I miss you so much. I can’t believe this happened I’m waiting to wake up from the nightmare. Thank you for everything you taught me in life. You were the best dad anyone could ask for and I would trade anything to have you back. I wish I had one more chance to talk to you I have so much to say. It makes me so sad that if/when we adopt or have a baby they will never know you and what an awesome papa you are. I know we will be together again and that is what’s getting me thru this nightmare. I love you dad!
