I pray that God will comfort each of you during this difficult time. I treasure the time spent with my McLean cousins. Some of us lived closer together than others so visiting was a little easier, but our visits to Lake Wales and Holly Hill, Florida were always very special to our family. I wish I had been able to visit more frequently and gotten to know David. My sincere condolences to all.
