A long long time ago as a young woman straight out of high school I worked for Al Parker (who did business with Mary Ann and Robert. She was always so pleasant to deal with and had words of encouragement for a young working girl. What a gracious lady. So sorry for the family's loss Jo Ann McComack

Dearest Matt and family,
George and I were so saddened upon hearing of the loss of your beloved grandmother. I know that these are hard and difficult times. You are in our thoughts and our prayers. There is nothing easy about losing someone you love. I would pray that you take comfort in the promise that for those who know the Lord there is no "good-bye" just a "see you later." You will see her again and when you do she will be vibrant and well and full of renewed life as you always knew her. I pray that you will find comfort in that. May God bless you and give you peace.
