Dennis, so sorry to hear about the loss of your Dad. I did not know until Sat. afternoon. Will keep you and your family in prayer. God bless you. Dickie Cfoft.

Al & Martha were as much a part of church as the pews and pulpit for as long as I can remember. They served continually and that service will always be appreciated and remembered. May God bless their family and friends at this time.

Al was such a very special person. I loved Al & Martha like family. They are rejoicing in Heaven today together with our Lord. Such a special friend. Will be praying for all the family as you go through the days and weeks ahead.

Praying for you as you grieve over Al. He was a wonderful man. We knew him from Shenandoah from the 1970's.

To Steve and Autumn and family. I had only met Alvin a couple of times, but when i did meet him he was a very nice man. I know that he loved his family very much and i know he will be greatly missed. I am sorry for the loss of Alvin and I know he will never be forgotten. I will be sure to keep the family in my prayers and do what i can to help in any way.

To Autumn and her family, sorry to hear of the loss of your grandfather. Prayers and love are sent to you from Massachusetts. Aunt Lisa and Lynda
