Mitzi and I wish to extend to you, Sherry and David and family, our sincere condolences at this time of deep sorrow. Although we have never met your dear parents, just knowing you for many years lets us know how special they were. I found out in the obit that your Mother was a brother to Don Stine. I know that family!
Please know we CARE and are praying for you for bountiful God's Grace to see you through this challenging time.
Mitzi, of course, remembers you,Sherry, from your hairdresser in Marietta, OH. I know you for trips to Par Mar and people who love you, and speak so very well of you.
Take care, lean on OUR Lord....he knows every tear that falls and they are at HIS feet in Heaven.
