To Jean, and the entire family, words are totally inadequate. May peace eventually ease your family's pain. I know that it will be a difficult time for a long time, now and in the future with each occasion they are missed. Please know that Mom and I are thinking of you and remembering you as part of our family for so many years on the Hill. Mom sends her continued love.

Our prayers are with the family during this tragic loss. We will never know this side of heaven why these things happen but we are thankful we have a God who can comfort us in these times. We had the opportunity to meet Lauren and sweet Blakely due to it was our daughter Hannah's engagement party she was attending with Trey. Our prayers are continual with all!
