Dear Kathy and Mark and Kids, We were saddened to read about the death of your mom/grandma. Losing a parent is always sad as you have already experienced. We hope you are all doing well and feeling God's peace. We are still in Texas, but saw the obituary when checking the GR Press on the internet. Wishing you the best. Jim and Linda
