    Dear Cyndi and family, I just learned of your brother's passing from Kay Hoffman last week. I am so very sorry and want you to know of my concerns. Our families were quite close when I was a child and youth. You shall all be in our continued thoughts and prayers. Blessings Duane

    Cyndi, so sorry for you at this time. Although I was unable to be with you yesterday, my thoughts & prayers were. I still think of the untimely passing of your mother each time we pass that intersection and when I get a Hershey bar, I think of your dad. You have had much in your life to deal with and our thoughts & prayers have been with you at these times. Your friends and faith will help you through as you let them. God bless you as you do.

    I'm so sad to hear this news today. Bruce worked with me at Sears and was such a nice guy. He could always be counted on to help with figuring out an issue or a solution, research, explaining a technical situation - always willing to help. My prayers to his family and friends.
