Sandra and Sharon; my heart and prayers are with you and your families. I loved your dad and your mom, they were always so good to me. I will never forget the blessing they were to me; true examples of those who share the love of Christ. Now they are together.

I will always treasure the memories of our joyous Christmas Eves with you all! Uncle Hank snapping pictures with his camera while we kids "stampeded" to the tree! How I wish that I could have made kolache for Uncle Hank one more time. With much love and prayers for God's comfort...Kathy
