My mom sent me a copy of your dad's obituary. I think the last time I saw you was in Oregon back in the 70's. Wow, such a long time ago. The thing I remember most about your dad was he would always hang those silver icicles on your Christmas tree one at a time. You always had the prettiest tree. I was sorry to see that your mom passed away also. She was always so nice. We had such fun times in junior high.
You will be in our prayers tonight.

I'm so very sorry for your loss. During difficult times the words of Revelations 21:4 have brought me great comfort. I hope these words will bring you comfort too.
