Dear Bruce & Brian, We're so sorry to read about mom's passing. Rodney & I have fond memories of them through the church & coming to babysit you boys on Hamburg Road. May Jesus always be first in your lives. Dad and mom now rejoice with Him and all the family. Press toward the mark of serving Him all the days of your life. Life is fleeting, but eternity of forever will meet us all very soon. Only through the shed blood of Jesus, the one and only true Savior in which we have forgiveness of our sins. PTL. Keep focused on Him and soon and very soon, we'll be seeing you. GOD BLESS you and all your families. Rodney & Myrna (Godinich) Scales
