    Praying for you, Jennifer, that God’s comfort and grace would be your strength and peace in Jesus Christ. Look to Christ as your Rock to lean upon.

    As a family, we will always remember the fond memories that we made with you and Larry when you visited us while we were in Montana. Larry’s love of word search puzzles and calling out “Hot-rod!” when he saw a classic muscle car drive by will always be a part of his life’s thread that is woven into the fabric of our lives.

    Much love and hugs, Sean & Tess Eddy and family
