Brad, I was so sorry to hear of your Father's passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Also, I wasn't aware of your Mother passing away a few months ago, so very sorry. I always looked forward to seeing them at the Shelby County Luncheon. Your Dad would call every so often to let me know they were ok. So sweet.

My dear Cindi, Brad, and Deb, To all of you I send my sincere sympathy. You have set a wonderful example of truly caring children while tending to the many needs your parents had at the later parts of their lives. You are blessed to have such a wonderful family. I'm proud to have known all of you. God bless you all. Your parents have set the bar high.
