Dear Marlene and Don; and Rosalyn and Mike, We share in your sorrow over the loss of your Dad. It is good to know that absent from the body, present with the Lord. But we still sorrow, yet not as others who have no hope. That picture of your Dad is just how I always knew him. We thank God for his life.
