  1. Luther and Mary, I was so sorry to read of your son’s passing. I knew you’d mentioned he was ill and I’m sure hoped and prayed he’d recover quickly. My thoughts will be with you on Friday, wishing I could accompany you. Spreading his ashes at sea sounds like just the way a Coast Guard man would want it handled. Whatever pains he beared, he’s at rest now, and I hope your grief and loss are assuaged in the knowledge that Gerald’s soul rests with our Savior.

  2. Our condolences to the family of Jerry Poole. He was a great guy with a big heart. The Harbor Depot Gang
