Dear Tracy, Alan and Mary,
We go back so many, many years. One of my fondest memories of your family helping me, was when I was about 7 or 8 years old, I was going to spend the night with one of my friends. But as always, when it came time, I always came home. But on this particular night, the child's mom who dropped me off at my doorstep, drove off before making sure I got inside safely. Which did not happen, because there was nobody home. I pounded and banged on the front door, and it wasn't long before your parents came over and let me stay with you until my family came home. I was such a scared little girl, but your family made me feel better.
Heaven is for real, and we will all be reunited at Father God's calling.
Love in Jesus Christ,
Bruce and Donna(Acker) Bennett

To all of you:
My sincere condolences on the loss of your father. I stopped in at the Vets home last fall and I did see your father. He was laying on his bed. He sat up and we chatted a bit. I know he will be greatly missed.
