My heart goes out to you for the deep loss you must be feeling for your beloved Mrs. Helen (Ruley) Hogan. How sad to lose someone so loved and so needed. May you find comfort in prayer and in one another. (Jeremiah 29:12,13).

Leigh Ann, Richard and the whole family;

I want to send my condolences for your loss. Even over so many years of being friends it is hard to know what to say at a time like this... I just hope that you have family that can comfort you and know that if there is anything our family can do for you we are always here no matter how long the time goes by between our visits with each other.
PEACE, JD Sparks
& Family
