Kelli and Lin,
So sorry to hear of your dads passing. He and your mom were good neighbors to us for many years. I know you will miss him but also know he is in a better, happier place with your mom by his side.

Words cannot express our gratitude to the Lord for placing Lindsey in our lives. He was such a dedicated deacon to our fellowship and both he and Ann will forever be a treasure to our family. He was indeed an example to the believers! Praying that God comforts your family during this difficult time.
