My condolences to Dale, Peggy and Sarah Jane – I have such fond remembrances of your parents. Now all of our parents are having a grand Bible Presbyterian “reunion” around the banquet table of their Savior, Jesus Christ! Weren’t we blessed to have such wonderful heritage? I will not be able to attend your Dad’s viewing or funeral due to work, but certainly wanted to let you know you will all be in my prayers. When I think of my childhood days at church, your Mom and Dad will always be included. With much love, Linda (Kennedy) D’Angelo
