    From Jeff and Nancy, (a niece)
    Sorry for your loss, actually all of our loss. But there is hope and victory in Jesus.
    The icy roads hindered making the funeral, but at least we are there in spirit.
    Peace from Him, to all.

      Thank you! The icy roads were terrible! You were definitely there in spirit.
