Dear Eli and family,
I am truly sorry for the premature loss of your husband, father, and grandfather. I am also very sorry that I am unable to attend the services and celebration of his life tomorrow.
I had the pleasure of serving as his Assistant AG for the Army National Guard of Wash. the last six months of my service before retirement in 1989. It was one of the major highlights of my career. He had incredible insight and leadership ability.
May our Lord's peace and blessings be with you and yours, particularly in the immediate days ahead.
Sincerely yours, Jerry Dines.
