Janice, we were very, very sorry to hear of Johns passing. We always enjoyed it when the two of you would stop in the store and share a couple of good stories. We have been out of the store now for 18 years and we always talk about all the good people we met and enjoyed over the years and you and John were at the top of the list.. Quinn and Audrey Holtan

I read about the death of your love one. I'm sorry for your loss. Death is something that we cannot sever, but love and memories last forever. May the God of "tender mercies and all comfort continue to surround you at this difficult time. 2 Corinthians 1:3,4. God wants to give you peace that surpasses all thought. Philippians 4:6.
