To Rebecca, Sheila , Sharon, and family,

Our lives have been enriched by your Fathers friendship and with such a neighborly closeness that at many times your Father was like a Father to us. For years either he called me or I called him 2-3 times every single week. We had such a bond as neighbor's and cared for each like family. We miss him dearly and will always cherish our remembrance and friendship we shared together.
May God give you all peace and his abiding presence now and in the future for you all during his absent from you. 
We are available to you for anything that we can do for you all during this season of life you all are processing. 
May God Bless you all and keep you in his love.

John & Diana.
