Amy and Catherine, you have my deepest sympathies. When Matt passed this spring, I was comforted knowing he was with Grandpa Davis. And now, your Mom is with your Dad and it seems like the circle is complete. Your family was always very special and I have no doubt that you have passed on that LOVE to your own families now. May the Lord keep you and bless you--Peace
