Comfort Prayers lifted for J.E., David and Steve along with their families during this difficult time. Thank you Aunt Nancy for teaching me to love rock & roll and dancing of course. Thanks for teaching me how to babysit and trusting me to use David’s birthday party for my home economics project. I love you and hope there was a Lucas reunion in heaven this week.
Love you all.
