Mildred, Karen, and Kathy, What a wonderful long life your husband and dad had! I am so glad that I got to know you through Timmie Leitch. Please e-mail me so that I can be in touch. Becky
I would like to share a comforting Scripture from God's inspired Word, the Bible with the family. Isaiah 41:10 says: "Do not be afraid, for I am with you. Do not be anxious, for I am your God. I will fortify you, yes, I will help you. I will really hold on to you with my right hand of righteousness". Please accept my sincere condolences. Always remember God loves you and he cares for you!
