May God provide you and your family with peace and ìthe comfort from the Scripturesî during this difficult time. (Romans 15:4)
I remember with fondness the great times we had square dancing with you and Wes. When we sold our house in NJ last year, we still had the 2 evergreen trees that you and Wes had given us years ago. Sadly, I lost my dance partner on Aug. 9th.
