Dear Phyllis and Sid,

Whatever words I may get to express today about "John" - it will fall far short of what he meant to me and my family and extended family. So many great memories...I was always intrigued how he wanted to share those things that he loved with others...he was always kind to me - even the few times we may have disagreed on matters that now seem so trivial (he probably realized that)...I love him and my heart aches, but as I consider his life and his love for the Lord - even in sorrow I can rejoice in HOPE...I pray that you both "hold fast" with confidence and that same rejoicing as I am certain you will...

You and Sid are so dear to us...
In the coming weeks if there is anything you need (even just to talk) - don't hesitate to call upon us!!
May God continue to bless us all with His grace!!!

In His Love,

David & Cheryl Morrison
