Hello Verna and all your family,
I was sorry to learn of the passing of your husband. I always enjoyed chatting with you when I got groceries and felt your care when my husband passed away very unexpectedly. Know I will pray that in this new journey that you need to walk God will grant you his sustaining grace. He is our Helper and is with us. Your family will be there for you. God bless. Kathy Buch
