  1. Guy, Mary Ann, and Family, Guy, I remember your brothers but did not know you had sisters. Regardless of age, health, or any other circumstance we are never ready to give up our loved ones. The only comfort has to come from our Faith in the Sovereignty of God and the manifested concern of caring friends. We are thinking of you and will hold you in our prayers. We hope it does help to know others do care. Joe
