Margaret and I really enjoyed your trips with us to the Casinos. Now maybe ALL the machines are "fixed" for the player to win although you did quite well when with us. God rest....

Daniel - so sorry to hear of your loss. My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family. God needed your grandfather with him and so he called him home to watch over all of you until you are reunited. Don't be said, rejoice in his life. He will live forever in your heart and mind. He's happy now that he is with our Lord.
