    Dear Barbara,
    My heart hurts for you! I’m so sorry about Grant passing. I remember when Calvin & Kay rented the boat at the lake. We all had such a good time. I think of you and Andy and pray that God will wrap his arms around you both and give you comfort and peace during this time. I’m praying for you.

    Dear Barbara and Andy:
    Mike and I were so very saddened to receive the call that we had known was inevitable, but were dreading – that our dear longtime friend has passed from this Earth into Heaven. He fought a good fight – and did everything that he could to stay with his family as long as he possibly could. We will miss him – and we will honor him by continuing to be here for you if you need anything at all. We are praying for you – May God wrap His arms around you – and give you strength and comfort and peace. We love you. And Mike says, Semper Fi brother.
    Alissa & Mike
