I am so sorry to hear of the loss of Mr. Foglesong. Grief can be so hard but our loving Heavenly Father can help us to cope.-2 Corinthians 4:7. Also he can give you the strength beyond what is normal. May his love and support help you through this difficult time that you're enduring at this time in your lives.

Jim was one of the finest gentlemen I've ever known. It was an honor to know him.
