Thank you to everyone

upon his death.
We know how much he loved all of you and how he
enjoyed working around the church. He was so happy on the
Sundays he was able to come back.
Our family appreciated all you did for him and us. He
was a very special person and we sure do miss him!

Bonnie, Tom, Tim, Randy and Penny
