Dear Lisa and Rose,
You were such sweet girls to have in class, which made me happy to meet your Dad when we retired and began playing Clabber on Tuesday. He was a fun guy to play cards with and a good partner! He could bid on practically nothing and ‘make it’! Nick and I share your sorrow and send you, and all of your family our sincere sympathy and love. We pray that God’s presence and love will be even more prescious to your mother and each of your family at this
time.
Sincerely, Connie and Nick Galloway
