My sincere sympathy to the family for the loss of your dear loved one. May you find peace and comfort in Psalms 65:2. Again my deepest sympathy.

We had to go to Front Royal, VA for David. When we got back we were stunned to get the bad news and felt terrible that we did not show our respect. Our prayers are with all of you. Mr. & Mrs.Bob and Joan Rizzone

Dear Sandra, Allan, and Kim, We are deeply saddened at the passing of your father. He was a great man and good friend. I am sorry I did not know of his passing until today. My Dad was unable to reach anybody and called me a few hours ago to let us know, after they returned from being away. Please call if there is anything you need.

Dear Sandra, Allan & Kim, Your parents were simply "good people". They were true neighbors and we respected them greatly and enjoyed their company. As with your mother's passing, we are out-of-town and unable to say goodbye. We might be at Sloan-Kettering for as long as 3 more weeks but we will offer prayers for Chris & Al daily. You know that we will be happy to do anything to assist you when we return. Please set memory cards aside for us. Fondly, Mike & Marilyn
