  • Dear Betty and family May God, Son and holy spirit fill you with peace and serenity during this time of profound loss of Larry, husband, father, and brother. We hold dear our Lord's words that in God's house Jesus has prepared a place for all of us that has accepted the eternal gift of salvation, that is the Taking on the sins of all of us so we would not be condemned to separation from God.
