On behalf of my mother, Lois Offutt, we extend our sympathy to you. We also hold dear the sweet friendship we enjoyed over the years and the assurance of the unbroken bond of love that death cannot break in our looking to that grand a better day of fulfillment of our Lord's promises and His coming. It was good to see all of you at Lois's 100th birthday.
