    Sending much love and prayers to your family at this time of loss and sadness. A great man gone on to his good reward. His service in the Frontier ward is not forgotten, nor our dear neighbors who lived on Deming Boulevard. May the good Lord fold you in His arms of comfort until we meet again .
