Sorry for your loss, just wanted to send my heartfelt condolences to the family. May you find comfort knowing that our Heavenly Father cares for you and will comfort you during this time. (2Corinthians 1:3,4; 2Thessalonians 2:16,17) Jesus gave us a wonderful hope that we may see our loved ones again when he said at John 5:28,29 that there will be a resurrection. May we keep our eyes on the promises of our Heavenly Father who promised that one day no one will say I am sick, (Isaiah 33:24) and that all our pain, sorrow and even death will be no more. (Revelation 21:3,4) Many prayers are with the family. May you have peace .

It saddens me to know that another dear friend of mine has passed. She certainly will be missed. As I reflect on the fun times and the trips that we shared while we lived on King Street, I have to smile. At that time we did almost everything together until we moved from the area more than forty-five years ago. We had many phone calls and stopped by there home over the years. One of my most fondest memories was seeing Joe and her together at our 50th Wedding Anniversary in March 2019. Rest In Peace our dear friends!
