Dear Robin, Dwain and Family,
I am so saddened to learn of your mom's passing. She was such a kind, caring and delightful person. Both your mom and dad will always have a special place in my heart as I think of them sitting in that same church pew every Sunday at PVUMC. My condolences and prayers are with you.

Robin and Dwain, We were sorry to read of your Mom's death. I've always thought the world of both your Mom and Dad. They knew my parents when they all attended the PV Methodist Church together, many years ago. They told me so many stories of my folks that I had never heard before. Your Mom and Dad were two of the finest people in Warren County. I always enjoyed hearing all about your Dad's arrowheads at his talks for the kids at PV School. And your Mom was always so knowledgeable about my pharmacy questions. They both have earned their spots in Heaven.
