  1. Dear Bobby and Louise,& dad
    So sorry about your mother. I had told Reeves and Aileen just a few weeks ago, ‘if we both move back to Sandy Mush we can help Bobby and Louise take care of their mother and dad’. It is a hard thing to lose a parent. But God doesn’t want us to live in this state always. So death is our avenue to our heavenly home to live with Jesus, our Savior, in complete happiness as we have never known in this life.
