Brenda, I was so sorry to hear that you lost Verlyn. I remember how in love you were when we were still teens. I often wished for someone that I could be as happy with. I found someone and that makes me able to understand how bereft you are. I don’t believe you ever get over a loss such as this. But, God will help you through this.

So very sorry to read of Verlyn’s passing. I fond memories of him and his family when we were kids. My family visited at his home in Baywood. Aunt Ida and Uncle Luther were so gracious to us kids. I Remember the Sunday afternoon croquet games at the Felps home. May the Lord comfort you in theses days.
