    I would like to offer my condolences to you all, Dennis and Susan it was a pleasure to be a little part of your family. My dad “Jerry” cared very much for both Harry and Marge. They were a blessing to him naming him his honorary son! I miss my dad dearly and I know you have struggled not only with your mom’s death but the days proceeding. How great is our God. my scripture has been, O death where is your sting. I know they are where they wanted to be, and lets see them gathered at a table enjoying each others company!
