Donnie, Glenda, Nancy and families,
Sending thoughts and prayers to all of you in the loss of your father. He was blessed to live 92 years! May you be comforted by your precious memories and the love and support from friends and family but especially by the comfort that God gives to those grieving. He was a special man and as I remember had a great sense of humor! I love the verse in Psalm 116:15 that says, "Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints." No doubt Mr. Purdy is hearing "Well done, my good and faithful servent."
Love, Tamara Tedder Cuthbertson
