Today is the anniversary of the passing of our father on March 3, 2014. When the mail arrived we had a card from Gary and Patsy Comer, honoring the anniversary of his passing. We remembered how thoughtful and gentle they were to us when we were so vulnerable in our sorrow. The quality of service that Gary provided us when we needed him is extraordinary.
