    Steve and I are so sorry for your Loss. We enjoyed visiting with John and Steve remembers fishing with him. We were happy to hear that your son was able to come home from his mission and spend some time with his father. You and your family are in our prayers and we pray for the Lord to comfort you in this time of need.

    We are hoping to come to the funeral tomorrow if we are able.

    Love Steve and Kris Inskeep
