John, this is Craig Cooper. Unfortunately, I never met your wife, however, I’m sure she was extremely kindhearted like you. In case you don’t remember, you would drive out to York to help me accept Jesus Christ into my heart. And I will never forget that. Thank you so much.
John-God bless you and your family at this difficult time.
John, Our condolences to you and your family. You and Kay welcomed us to Landis Farms and were the best neighbors a family could have. Kay will be missed by so many. May your wonderful memories help ease your sorrow.
We wish to express our sincere sympathy to your family on the loss of your mother and wife. Praying for your family.
