  1. Char and kids,
    We were saddened to hear the news about Russ. It seems strange to offer condolences this way – we would much prefer to be there in person to offer our support. But we are in the middle of Utah right now so, unfortunately, that’s not possible.
    You are in our thoughts and prayers.
    Love, Jim & Cathy

  6. Hello Anne,

    I saw in the paper about your father yesterday. I’m so sorry for your loss. I know what it’s like to lose your dad so I feel your pain. I didn’t really know him, but I’m sure he was really well known and loved by all. God will give you the strength to make it through this tough time and he will be there for you always. I still have tears for my dad even though it’s been since 1996. They never leave your heart.

    I hope you and Jessica are doing well under the circumstances. Once again, we are so sorry for your loss.
