It is our hope that the memories of good times and laughter with Marilyn through the many years will carry you through the tough times ahead. May our Grand Creator comfort you through his promises of a resurrection when there will be no sickness, pain or death, as Acts 24 verse 15 and John 5 verses 28,29, also Revelation 21 verse 3 and 4 tells us. If we can be of any assistance don,t hesitate to knock on our door anytime!! Sincerely, The Rices
