  4. My condolences to Mrs. Berryhill and her family. May these promises from the Bible give them solace as they endure this difficult time. Jehovah God is close to the brokenhearted, and saves those who are crushed in spirit. And he will wipe away the tears from all faces. Psalms 34:18; Isaiah 25:8 NWT. Peace and happy memories be with you.

  5. Linda i am so sorry to hear of Gary’s passing–I have known him from first grade and am just so saddened by his passing—what a hit Gary was last year at our 70th birthday party with the blankets that he had crocheted for us–they are works of art they myself and his class will always cherish. I know he enjoyed life from the pictures you have shared and that makes my heart happy. My prayers are with you and your family.
