    Dear Larry, Gwen, Dave, Judy and Families,
    I was so sorry to hear of your Mother’s passing. I have greatly enjoyed being her neighbor for the past two years. She was a lovely lady, whom I greatly enjoyed visiting. I enjoyed hearing of your parents lives before Lawrence and having her share her many pictures with me. I was blessed having known her for a short time.

    Most Sincerely,
    Susan Haley

    Larry and Gwen:

    So sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. God comfort and strengthen you both as you share fond memories and claim Christ’s promises. We both have lost both of our parents several years ago and still miss them. And we have been comforted knowing the Lord is with us and will be forever. God bless you! Rod & Margie Hinkle
