    Don, Larry and families, I am so sorry to read about the passing of Nadine. It’s that time of life when the good things seem to be going away. However there is Hope, found in my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. May He fill your lives with his peace and His love this day, and may you find eternal life within the freedom He offers through His death. Love and miss you guys. Gary and Alan Tollefson
