    The loss of a dear, loved one is never easy to endure. My hope is that the words of John 5:28,29 may bring you a measure of peace in the days to come.

    We go to the grave of a friend saying, “A man is dead,”
    but Angels throng about him saying, “A man is born.”

    Jana, Amy, David, I’m so sorry to hear of Clark’s passing. He was always special to me . He came down with his hunting/fishing buddy to our farm. Clark was always so funny and teased me all the time. I loved his visits. He gave our parakeet “Henry” and mom a lot of teasing too. I know he was a great son, husband, father, and grandfather. He was a man of honor and a caregiver to his family.

    We have been praying for Ralph and you Jana ever since we heard of Ralph’s diagnosis. What good neighbors/friends you were as our children were young and growing up. Our deepest condolences go out to you Jana, and David and Amy. “Lord, welcome your servant, Ralph.”
