Mary, Sherry, Debra, John; Again I wanted to let you know I am sorry for your loss. All I can say is draw comfort from our great God of comfort Jehovah". (2 Cor 1:3,4) The scriptures can comfort us in many ways esecially when we don't always have the another means of comfort around us, our friends. Friends to share stories and good times we had with the one ee have loved and lost. I will never forget the late night card parties that our parents (Jim & Mar Lou & Marvin & Mary) had at both of our homes. We as kids have retained a few funny and fond memories too many to mention the other night. So if you ever need a friend email or call me because you all played a major role in my life. Debra you still make me laugh!
