Stephen's service

Tomorrow we’ll be having a memorial service for Stephen at 2pm at the Grace Place in Stuart (there will be a viewing from 1-2pm). This has been a long week for many of us, though I cannot even begin to put myself in the shoes of Stephen’s mom, dad & brother. May we never have to experience the level of …

Celebrating Easter – a little late

Many of you know that Ricky’s cousin, Michael, was killed on April 8th. We were able to attend Easter services that Saturday night, but we found out about his car accident later in the middle of the night. Needless to say, we never got around to giving our kids their Easter baskets that Sunday. So we decided to surprise them …

She convinced us this would be a better means than monthly mass emails for sharing our news and recent family photos. I can’t promise nightly compositions and lengthly slide shows, but then you probably wouldn’t have the time to look …
