    John , Judy & Family: Our thoughts and prayers are with you during these difficult times. An Irish Blessing for you–“It’s easy to be pleasant when life flows by like a song, but the man or woman worthwhile is the one that can smile when everything goes wrong. for the test of the heart is trouble and it only comes with years. And the smile that is worth all the treasures of earth is the smile that shines through the tears.”

    I have so many fun memories with Jennifer! (She LOVED her hair!) We were friends in elementary and middle school. She was so sweet, kind, and smart. We share the same birth date and I always thought that was special. I knew that she would be someone amazing when we grew up. She touched so many lives. I am praying that God will comfort you with His peace, give you hope, and surround you with His love.
