  1. Charley

    Don’t know if you remember me. The SPD officer that would go by and drink coffee with you at 3am.
    Just wanted you to know you will be in my thoughts and prayers. Must be a very difficult time with the very recent list of your brother and now your beloved wife. Look into Jesus for your strength.

  2. She always made me laugh about something every time she came for an appointment. She will be deeply missed. 

  3. My sincere condolences to the family at this difficult time. May you all seek God for comfort, peace, strength and support (2 Cor 1:3).
