To Catherine and Gary. Sorry to see Dennis go. Every time I think of him I remember us playing out back in the sandbox. I hope both of you are doing OK. I just lost my aunt to cancer. Now I’m looking after my 103-year-old aunt who I just got into Brethren Village.
I have Saint Jude’s in my will. So when I pass away They will be getting some bucks.

My condolences upon the passing of Denny. Though your entire family will miss him, he now beholds Jesus, face-to-face. May you all feel the comfort and presence of God at this time. Prayers, Marie Kinch (FOPM)
