    It is with deep sympathy that I express my condolences to my family concerning the home going of our “Nit” whom we all love so very much. May our Lord God grant us the comforting presence of the Holy Spirit in our times of weakness and may we gain strength from His Word which assures us that “to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord.”
    Love you!
