We are praying that you take comfort in the Lord's love and know that you are never alone. We are thinking of you during this tremendous time of loss. Our deepest sympathies to you Jimbo, and to the rest of the family. John 16:22: "So also you have sorrow now, but I will see you again, and your hearts will rejoice, and no one will take your joy from you." In His love, Tony and Anne.
Jimbo and family, Ron and I are so saddened of Ann's passing. She was so beautiful outside and in. Our hearts send love, hugs and prayers. I am so glad I was able to visit with her at the football game last fall and the restaurant with Mark and Mary Ellen. God bless! in our thoughts and prayers. "Well done good and faithful servant." Love, Ron and Donna
