    Mark and Danny, I was saddened to hear of your father’s passing, I have fond memories of both your parents from our days together at Lincoln. They were devoted to you two. I no longer live in the area so will be unable to pay my respects in person. I know your father was proud of the men you have become. You and your family are in my prayers.

    Mark and Danny and your families,
    So sorry for your loss, yet praising God Calvin is in Heaven. I have so many memories of all of you. Two I will share: Easter sunrise breakfast your dad cooked the eggs cracking 4 eggs at a time two in each hand not breaking one yoke! And his opinion of which marriage partner should mop the kitchen floor, “it is the man who should do that back breaking job.” He loved his wife dearly. Many blessings to all of you. I am living in Massachusetts now near Diana and her family so will miss the funeral, but know I am praying to our great God for comfort for you.
