  1. Dear Cousins, Although we are cross-continent in miles, my prayers and thoughts are with you during this time of grief. I have all the good memories of our childhood and growing up years stored in my heart. How vividly do I remember my visits to Baldwin, and the visits of you to Amelia and Patterson. Please know you have a special place in my prayers. May the grace and love of God comfort our family during this time of sorrow. “I am the resurrection and the life; whoever believes in me, will even if he dies will live. John 11:25 We will all meet and be joined again in the heavenly realms. Till then, Cousin Bob
