Debbie, Rhonda, and Tracy, we are so sorry to hear of your dad’s passing. Distance prohibits us from being there but our thoughts and prayers are with each of you. We have so many precious memories of your dad, and we loved him. He was one of the most thoughtful, kind, and giving people we have ever known. Plus, the Marner family is so thankful for all the times he helped our mom when she lived alone. No one could have made better neighbors than your family! His passing also leaves a big hole in Glen’s heart! Charles was and forever will be a special friend to him. The invitation to come visit us in PA is always open to you. We love you! Glen and Ramona
