Our deepest heartfelt sympathy in the passing of Aunt Carol. Most recently, Aunt Carol had mentioned over Facebook that she lived vicariously through our travel pictures. This meant so much to Karen and I that we always prayed over it and dedicated some pics. God Bless and we love you all.

To Randy, Kathy and daughters:
So sorry to receive word about Samuel. The beginning of the Apostle Paul's message in 2 Corinthians 1:3-5 expresses better than what I can write.

Cindy and Joe, Deepest sympathies for you and your family. Fr. Sangl always spoke highly about your son (and your whole family for that matter). It was nice to be reminded about them. Most boys he called "Chief" or "Crusher" or a million other made up names... but a few were on first name with him. Warmest prayers for you and your family for strength and faith. /Joe
