We were sorry to hear of Simon's passing. We pray that our Lord will
comfort and strengthen you, Larry and Verna, in these days. You folks
were always good neighbors to us and to my parents. We are sorry not to
be able to be with you. Weather, medication, and frailty are the culprits.
We will be with you in spirit.
