    Charles and Joan, I enjoyed working with Ralph at Mitchell Manor. I am sorry about the loss of your father. John tells us in his first letter, "And this is the testimony, that God gave us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He who has the Son has life; he who has not the Son of God has not life. I write this to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life. " (Jn. 5:11-13) Remember God is with you as your morn the loss of your father.
