  1. So sorry to hear of Carl’s passing. Prayers for all the family as they travel this road. Until we meet again Carl, God has welcomed a soldier home.

  2. Darol, Mary, and Steven, I’m so sorry for the loss of your father and grandfather, he sounds like a man I wish I would have known. The boys and I talked about how you have a hole in your hearts that God will need to mend, but it takes time. We love you three, and we will continue to pray for you.
