Dear Pat,

Buck and I were so sorry to learn of Bill's passing and send you our deepest sympathy. Having moved to Montoursville PA 14 years ago to be near our daughter and her husband, we don't get to see any of our old Audubon friends any more, as Buck's health problems prevent us from traveling any distance. We will be thinking of you and wish you all the best.

Fondly, Nona

I am so very sorry of your loss of William. Losing someone we love can be so devastating. "He heals the brokenhearted; He binds up their wounds." Psalms 147:3 This verse was so encouraging when my mother passed. I hope this helps you as well. I would be glad to assist any who need help with the grieving process using the scriptures. Again, I am so very sorry for your loss. Sincerely, Ann Turner
