My heart is aching to learn of your loss. Chris and I were friends from our days in the Mother's Club group in Somerset when Alan (Settles), Tim and Andy were little guys. Although I moved out of state over 20 years ago, she was so kind to contact me last year when I was going through some similar life experiences that she, too, had walked. My sincere condolences in your loss. May God watch over all of you as you face the difficult days to come. Janice (Settles) Morgan
