To Myrties' children Torri Poindexter, Latecia Terry and Tiera Poindexter, I cannot find the words to express my deepest sorrow for your families loss so I will borrow the words below to share my most heartfelt feelings.
Just Call On Me. I can’t comprehend just how sad you must feel For the loss of someone you love. This sorrowful time must still feel unreal And you’re looking for strength from above. I hope, from my heart, that your pain will decrease, That your spirit will gain strength again, And I pray that your faith will create inner peace And that God will send blessings--Amen. Till then, if you need me to lighten your load, I’m waiting to come to your aid. Just call on me, and I’ll walk down that road, Until the dark times start to fade. Deep condolences, By Karl Fuchs

Just Call On Me

I can’t comprehend just how sad you must feel
For the loss of someone you love.
This sorrowful time must still feel unreal
And you’re looking for strength from above.

I hope, from my heart, that your pain will decrease,
That your spirit will gain strength again,
And I pray that your faith will create inner peace
And that God will send blessings--Amen.

Till then, if you need me to lighten your load,
I’m waiting to come to your aid.
Just call on me, and I’ll walk down that road,
Until the dark times start to fade.

Deep condolences,
By Karl Fuchs
