Not sure what to say?

Rich's kindness in hosting my classes of rambunctious eighth graders on the driving range at Taiyo is forever appreciated, his kids Richard and Bre delightful in PE class on the base. Words cannot alleviate your sorrow, but know he shall be missed. Sincerely, Marguerite Leavitt, Teacher--Kadena Air Base, Okinawa.

Our deepest sympathy to the Erland family. May God's promise at 1 Cor.15:26 comfort you during this difficult time. Sincerely, Jim & Beverly
