Daddy, we will miss you so much, you was not my biological father, but you adopted me when I was only 2 years old, and that made you my Daddy. Thank you for loving me unconditional, and taking the role of a real father. Daddy I told you on Sunday night that I would make sure everyone is ok and I will keep my word. Rest in Paradise daddy and tell mama we love and miss her. Enjoy walking around Heaven roads.

Love Your Older Daughter,

Dorothy Faith Smith-Parker

To the family of Mr. Robert Griffin please accept my sincere condolence.  We are all faced with the death of a dear loved one.  At times like this I like to turn to the bible for comfort.  The scripture at 2 Cor. 1:2,3 calls Jehovah the God of all comfort.  May his love surround you at this time.  I look forward to the fulfillment of the scripture at Isaiah 33:24 which tells us that soon no one will say I am sick.  Also, Rev. 21:3,4 which says death will be no more.  I hope these scriptures provide you with some comfort and hope.  You can find even more encouraging words at along with ways to cope with grief.  Again, I am sorry for your loss.

With Deepest Sympathy to the Griffin Family. I've had the pleasure of knowing Mr. Robert's Aunt Ruby Campbell, who is my Godmother, and Ms. Lou Smith, who is such a loving sweet spirited person. This is a difficult time in your family but God will see you through, just keep praying, loving each other, keeping the faith and believing that all things are possible through God's Grace and Mercy.

Love always, Elaine Nealy, 6670 Hamilton St., Apt. 9. Preston, GA 31824

With my deepest sympathy to the Griffin Family and Miss Mattie. I worked with "BO" at Warren Scott Contracting for over 15 years.  He was a kind gently man with a very big heart.. and I loved his deep voice.. I have so many great memories of him on job sites. He was great at what he done and he took care of his family.  You will be missed BO but never forgotten.
