    I deeply appreciate the genuine friendship and tender care you have always shown to your neighbors, (my in-laws) Bob and Norma Smallwood, and to Steve and I. All through the years when we would come to visit, there you were with your warm welcome and precious presence. We enjoyed those visits very much! I loved how you cared for each other’s dogs and did so much (you and Lisa) to help Mom and Dad, especially in the more recent years when Mom’s health was failing and Dad struggled so to care for her. It was such a comfort to know that you and Lisa were there, only a few steps away from each other’s door aiding and assisting and reporting concerns, taking them MANY times to medical and other critical appointments. I look forward with great anticipation to the day that we all meet again at the feet of Jesus where there will be no more tears, no more pain or suffering. Heaven seems closer today, as it always does when those we love have stepped over.
