Oh, Mel and Family. I am so sorry to hear of your loss. My thoughts are on you and prayers lifted for comfort as you walk this shadowed valley.

Sorry to hear of Bob's death. I enjoyed our conversations when he would come over to relieve me of some of my organic fertilizer (horse manure) for his garden. He was a nice man, and will surely be missed.
