Uncle Bob I have been praying for you and Aunt Nellie over the years. It is good to see a picture of your smiling face. It is sad to think that there will be one less smile in the world. Say hi to your sister, my mom, and dad and everyone for me. I'll be seeing you all a little later.

Love Your Nephew,
Reverend David C. Krause Sr.
