    Dear Vicki, Terry and Family,
    Our Pastor shared that the most powerful thing a person can do for someone is pray for them. Whatever the circumstance may be, offer prayers. We see from all the posts, friends and family are doing exactly that. Neil and I offer our prayers for God to wrap his arms around you and carry you through this tragic time.
    May wonderful memories wash over to help you through each day. We hope you feel the prayers of people who love you and are keeping you very close to their heart.
    Our deepest sympathies,
    Nancy and Neil Veenis
