Bill and Tom,

Jane and I were so saddened to hear of Edna's death on Monday. We so enjoyed taking breaks and visiting with you while we were working on our cabin. She was such a sweet and encouraging soul. Bill, the two of you simply seemed like sweethearts the many times that we would see you sitting together on the patio enjoying the view of the lake and simply being together. May God be with you in this season of loss.

Tom, sorry I didn't know about this when I waved at you Saturday. I would have come and talked with you. That is two losses for you in a brief time.

God's best to both of you.

Gary and Jane Cloyd
