Molly, Rick and families:

We are very sorry for your loss. I was just thinking about your dad the other day and realized that I hadn't seen him for awhile. We talked often when I would run into him at Riesbeck's. Praying for all of you.

Crist Family, my deepest sympathy on the passing of Myrle. Our families have been friends for years, and Myrle was always such a kind and gentle man. He reminded me so much of my Father, and how he lived his life and treated people. His pain and suffering are gone, and he is in a much better place. Rest in Peace Myrle, until we meet again.
In Christian Love, Pandora
