I would like to express my sympathy for the loss of their father and grandfather, LuVerne. I was his Hospice Volunteer person and he was a true delight to visit with these past three weeks. We had so much in common, especially our travels over seas and growing up on a farm. Thank you for sharing LuVerne with me these few precious weeks. May God be with you all during this time of your loss.
