Judy, Bill, Debbie and Dee, My deepest condolences on losing your husband/ brother. He is someone I will always remember with a smile. Those silly hats on holidays..He bought me a turkey hat one Thanksgiving. I know especially during the holidays are the hardest (my first year without my Mom) Just know I am thinking about and praying for your family. You all meant a lot to me... those smiling faces on Sunday mornings. God Bless Love, Lisa
