We had so much fun with your family when we all lived in Robinson and when you moved back to Michigan. Lots of card playing and the kids having a good time playing together. Our best to your family. Love Dorothy and Jim -Dorothy and Jim Boughton

My thoughts are with Ken's family. It is so painful to lose someone, yet no one else can really know all that you feel except our Heavenly Father. He knows and feels your pain. He calls death an enemy and promises to remove it forever, Isaiah 25:8 "And he will swallow up death forever..." He also promised to wake up all our loved ones, in the memorial tombs, from death (Isaiah 26:19). What joy it will be to see our loved ones again and to enjoy life as our Creator purposed (Psalms 145:16). Ihope these words give all of you comfort. -Joshua
