  1. Brenda- Mike and I were so sorry to hear about Uncle Ned’s passing.  He was very kind.  Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

  2. I'm so very sorry for your loss! He was a second dad to us. I've been extremely ill and haven't gotten to see him this past year. In fact I didn't make it to the funeral because I was in the hospital. God bless you in your grief.
