I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your dear Burton and send you my sincere condolences. May you find comfort from God’s word at Revelation 21:3,4. Heartfelt prayers are with you and your family.
So sorry we cannot come to the visitation or funeral as we still have family visiting. You will understand since you and Bucky were so family oriented! We send our love and heartfelt prayers for now and the days ahead.
We love you, Peggy & Paul
