Dear Bro. Higgins,

We never met your wife but it was an honor to meet you when came to Beavercreek, Ohio. We are so sorry about your loss. May the Lord give you peace that only He can give and give you grace through the days ahead. We can only imagine the crowns that she has waiting for her because of the work you did in Mexico! How many precious souls will meet her in heaven and say "Thank you for telling us about the Lord"! Only the Lord knows! You are in our prayers! God bless and keep you.

Brother Norman, We share your feeling of loss at the passing of your long-time partner and my Sister-In-Law, in our adventure though our earth-bound life time. We wish we all lived closer together, so we could have shared mutual "adventures", but we know that Gloria is now in a much more friendly and welcoming life.
Your brother, Alton
