  1. Dear Judy and Buddy, I am so sorry for your loss but can only imagine the reunion that is taking place in Heaven! I bet I know 4 people who are sitting on a riverbank……talking, talking, talking! Love you all!

  2. ‘For
    God has comforted His people, and He will show mercy to His own afflicted ones.’ (Isaiah 49:13b) May God continue to provide you and your family with peace and
    comfort during this difficult time.
