    To Jackie, Ron and Barbara my deepest sympathy. I remember the days of long ago when both your parents were with us. I remember the love and care they showed for their children and their neighbors. May the God of comfort comfort you now and in the days to come and may we all look forward to the hope that God promises in the future. Rev 21:4,5.
