    We think of you at this time in the loss of both of your parents. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. May you lean on our Lord and Savior to give you peace, comfort, and the assurance that they are both in a peaceful place. No more pain. They have it so much better then all of us still here. God will be with you. We all have so many memories. What a time it was growing up in the neighborhood.
    Again, we share you loss but know they are at rest.

    Dear Jan, Cathy, and Gary,
    If if hadn’t been for your parents inviting us to dinner, the two of us would never have met. On December 6, 1965, each of us had been invited separately to dinner at your home. That was the beginning of our life as a couple and we have your parents to thank.
    We were sorry to learn of their passing. May you find peace in the coming days and may your memories be a comfort to you. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
    Lorelie and Rich Kula
    Goodyear, AZ
