Dear Ruth, Steve and family,
We are saddened to hear of the loss of your dear father, Steve. We visited with him many times over the years and always enjoyed him. He was a great man. We are sorry we were unable to come to his service due to ill health of our own.
Our prayers are with you - may it comfort you to know he is now with our Lord and Savior.
Elden and Mary Seeley
