  1. Marilyn, I’m sure you know how much you and your family mean to me. I will pray for you, your mother, sister, brother and the rest of your family, asking for peace that passes understanding for each of you–a gift that only our Lord can give. I’m so glad that your father was with people who cared for him during his last days and hours. I’ll remember him fondly and with respect for all he did for our country.
