May God bless your family during this time of mourning, and give you that peace that passes all understanding. Sharon has known your parents for nearly 50 years, and I have known them over 40 years. What special people they were, and faithful servants for the kingdom... both your Mom and your Dad!
May God give you special memories of them until you see them again!

Matthew 25:23
"Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord."
