    From Don and myself, our prayers are with you all during this time. May God comfort you with His great comfort. I will always remember Aunt Kass’s big laugh back when we all lived in Collins Park and then when i would come and stay over when you guys lived in Dobbinsville, and that i was always welcome as yet another teenager, eating all your stuff and drinking coke or pepsi from the stacks of cases in the kitchen in your home in Rambleton; a lot of great memories, to be sure. Love to you all. –Jette

  • I am very sorry to hear of the loss of your loved one. I did not know them personally, but I know the pain of losing a loved one in the battle of an illness. Something that has brought me comfort during such times is the Bible’s promise at Revelation 21:4, stating that God will soon remove all tears, pain and death. I look forward to such a time, and hope that those words may be encouraging to you as well.
