We have been praying for you and your family throughout this season of life. We are so sorry that the death of your parents happened so close together. However, we rejoice with you and know that Brian and Cindy are in the presence of our Lord! We continue to pray, peace and comfort over you and your family. We pray for the service on Saturday that it would honor glorify our lord and give glimpses of the legacy that Brian has left for his family and for us. We will be traveling home from Arizona on Saturday so cannot attend. Know that we will be praying for you and the service. Blessings, Mac and Arla
