Our thoughts and prayers are with your whole family at this time. We never forget the day we lose a parent, but it is a comfort to know that one day we will see them again. There are so many fond memories that go back to the late 1950's when all of us attended Harmony Baptist. What fun we had at Bible school, BYF, ice cream socials and picnics. I wish sometimes we could have those days back for today's youth to enjoy.
I can just imagine the singing going on; now that Dad, Paul and Lee have their tenor with them.
Prayers for strength and comfort are being said.
