    I am so sorry to hear about Donald’s passing. I was just thinking about him the other day, and it’s always wonderful recollections. He is with Jeanne and Aunt Hazel and Uncle Percy and Tommye Dean now and what a day of rejoicing it must be.

    My sincere condolences and prayers for all of you in this sad time, but we will see him again when we too are embraced in the warmth and love of our Savior Jesus Christ. Through Him all things are possible.

    Please keep in touch and let me know if there’s anything I can do.

    With Love and Prayers,
