    Lloyd, Gary, Ronnie and Gayle,
    We were so sorry to hear of Betty’s passing. Please know we are thinking about you and your family during this difficult time. It’s not easy to lose your parents – we have experienced it with my dad and Nancy with both of her parents. Sometimes you just have to let them go as it is the best for them. May God bless you all and give each of you peace to carry you through your loss.

    Our condolences for your family loss and to know “For if we have faith that Jesus died and rose again, so too God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep in death through Jesus. (1 Thessalonians 4:14) Our prayers are with your family.
