Sincere condolences to you and your family.
My deepest condolences to the Saxon family. May God be with you in this time of sorrow.
Mrs. Betty, John and Sidney,
Johnny and I are so very sorry to hear about Rabon. Oh this is so so sad. We just saw he and Mrs. Betty at the Ridge Road Restaurant. We were so glad to see them, because it had been so many years since we had seen them. We all used to have some great times down on the river. We will truly miss Rabon, he was always so much fun and he always had a beautiful smile on his face. My heart really breaks to hear about this.
You all are in our thoughts and prayers during this time. I pray for comfort, strength and healing for you all.
We are only a phone call away should you all need anything. Our deepest sympathy to each of you.
Rabon always called me Jericho ( Jerry).
He was always laughing with me, he’d say; you won’t do Jericho.
My heart is so sad for my sister Betty, Bruno his dog that’s missing him so much already. John, Sydney, spend time with one another cause time is short for us all. Jesus is coming back.
Prayers for the family.
