Our thoughts and prayers are with you all - Tom, Grace, Jessica, Jamie, Shirley and all the family. It’s been a hard year for you losing both of your moms 30 days apart. We loved seeing and chatting with Ginny at Parkway and the Worship Center, at her house you all decorated with thousands of lights at Christmas, and at Plantation Terrace when our parents (George and Ruth) lived there, too. Such sweet memories of so many years! We will see you later in the year when we’re back in Florida. Love to all, Tom, Cathy, Brad, Aubrey, Lisa and the grands
