Lila and Family, Kathy and I wish you all God’s every comfort today and in the weeks ahead. I’m sorry we could not be there today. I often think about the great times Mike, Bill, and I used to have when we were all three together at visits to Grandpa Runnels house. Will keep you all in our prayers. Allen
