    My prayers go out to the family. I always remember when we were little stopping by after Friday evening football games every once in a while. Jim and Carlene would just sit and talk with my parents. It was always the most Dad would talk because they were always so welcoming and friendly.

    My heart goes out to all of you. Your family was our family-and that will never change. I remember when each one of you were born & what a wonderful help to your Dad-Trisha-you were when my Brother Joe died. Of course I have stories on Jill-being first born & will tell when I see you! After that, I went to college.
    You have all been Loved so deeply as the Lord Loves each one of us-lean on our Savior & He will always be there for You!🙏
