My condolences to the family. The death of a loved one is the most devastating experience a family can face. At times, the loss may seem unbearable, but know that there are those who care, and more importantly, God cares. Psalm 34:18 tells us that God "is close to the brokenhearted." He "is the God of all comfort". (2 Corinthians 1:3,4)

Tiny, So very sorry to hear about Shirley. Thank you so much for letting us know. Almost went by your cottage to see if anyone was there. Never realized she was so sick. Had not talked to her since Jackie died. You are in our prayers. love you Puch & Don

We were talking about you guys on the way up to Lake Erie last week. We both retired and now busier than ever and lost touch with all the bowlers. Alzheimer's robs families of the last years with their loved ones. We are so sorry for the loss of Shirley. Prayers and peace to you. Bob, Cindy and family
