  1. Gladys, we have been so thankful to have you and Mike as neighbors for 25 years. You’ve always been so welcoming and friendly, and consider you family. We will truly miss Mike. Keeping you in our prayers. Love from Kris & Peg

  2. We are so sorry for your loss. When this happens in our family we need more than human strength. God and his Son can provide what we need. Please review these scriptures : John 5:28-29 and Revelation 21:4
