    My deepest sympathy to your family. My husband, Dwight, and I had a cabin two doors down from them. I have fond memories of Buster, Marge and Eugene from there and all the fun we had. I truly miss those days. May you find peace and comfort through our Lord Jesus Christ. You are all in my prayers.
