I didn't hear about your dad until last night at church. I am so sorry. I pray that God is comforting you and your family and that He in His mighty power will give you peace during this time. Blessings.

I wish I could be there with you but I am there in thoughts and prayers. I love J.D. (and Dottie)so much. They have meant so much to me even though I didn't get to visit as much as I would have loved to.

My condolences to Cheryl and the entire family in this time of mourning.
Uncle JD and Aunt Dot were like family when I was growing up.
Uncle JD was my daddy's (Val Ryan) boss in the Air Force and he and Aunt Dot just took my daddy in as like a son or a little brother! When daddy and momma (Vaughnie Asher) got married they did the same thing.
Cheryl just know that we thought a lot of your parents and memories will remain with us.
God bless you all!
