Gradford, Peggy, Family,Looking through my notes I found this statement: "God's gift of life is the last word--not death." Ephesians chapter two: "Even when we were dead in sins he hath quickened us together with Christ . . . by grace you are saved through FAITH."I hope this is helpful. Sincere Sympathies,Jim & Kathy Crooke

What a vibrant light has been dimmed. Ryan had such a good heart and pleasant personality and dry wit. We will see his light shining in so many places as we remember his life and his devotion to his sweet family. Heaven has gained another sweet angel to watch over us. I extend my condolences to all his family. My love and prayers are with you all.Love and PrayersCharlene Langdon Lee
