I am so sorry for your loss, you all had wonderful parents Ray and Helen or the greatest and I know that they have left you with so many treasured memories, and they used to stop and visit me a lot when I worked at the information center At Mill Springs, they were a trip😍.

I would like to have been at the service today but I’ve been sick and coughing a lot and I did not want to disrupt the service but I want all of you to know how blessed you were and I know you already know that, But they said an example in all they did.

Love and blessings to all of you.
