Shirley, we want you to know that we are saddened in the loss of your brother. We intended to be with you tonight but Norman had a little set-back with his open heart surgery and he went to bed early and we go to the Doctor early in the morning. It is hard to lose a brother. Please know we will pray that God will help you through the day tomorrow. May God hold you in His arms and comfort all of you at this time.
