Mike and David,
We will miss your mother and my sister. We have many good memories of our childhood together and also in later years. I talked to her a year ago about the Lord and she assured me that she had accepted Christ and was not afraid to die. May God give you strength and wisdom in the coming days in all your decisions. We are willing to help in any way that we can. We love both of you!

Mr. and Mrs. Matthew McKinney and family

David and Mike,

Jim and I were your neighbors, and shared the driveway, in the white house on Hwy 20 when you, Scott and Stephanie were young. We just learned of Jan's death and wanted you to know how sorry we are. We all shared some very special moments together that will never be forgotten. Jan was a very special lady with a wonderful sense of humor. We are sorry for your loss.
