Christine and family. I am so sorry for your loss. I have MANY fond memories of our families from years past. especially those trips to visit you in Bonner Springs. Dale was listening for any good news on his ham radio and Jim & I would sleep in Teresa's bedroom with her cat curled around my head. I shall always cherish those good memories as well as others while you were living in Arkansas.

May you feel the presence of God who loves you more than anyone else could ever love you. Let Him comfort you as you go through this difficult time. Please know we are praying for you. Let this be a time of celebration for the times you had together.
We love you lots.
Roberta & Bob, Ty & Deanna, Cheryl, Amanda & Family.
