    Bobbie, Angie, Garry, Shelly, Tom and families. I am so sorry for
    your loss. Words cannot express the extent that our hearts hurt,
    but the Lord supplies the peace that passes all understanding and we have the blessed hope of eternal life. Even though I haven’t seen you in years,, the times we spent together are some of my dearest memories. I love you and am praying for you.
