Lee and Gina we are very sorry for your loss. Only met your mother once when she was out eating with Einar, but she was very gracious. Hopefully it will not be long until we get to see our loved ones again in the resurrection that Jesus promised. You have our sincere condolences.

Troy and Gina, words cannot express my sadness in the loss of your amazing mother. She was my mother's best friend for many years and long after they both retired from Goodyear. Now they are both together again and I can just hear them laughing and enjoying each other's friendship. Prayers for your both in your time of grief.
