James, Sarah......just learned of your dads passing. Just wanted to let you know of my prayers and thoughts in this time of loss. I remember your dad's faithfulness in his service to Jesus at Life Line. He was always a role model and witness. I do miss those days at church with the gang. My prayers for the coming days.
