Dearest Aunt Patty. May you rest in eternal peace at the right hand of our dear lord and savior Jesus Christ.

To the Biver family, I'm sorry I cannot make it back to the funeral. Know that your Mom and Dad will always be in my thoughts and prayers. There is no greater joy and memory during my childhood that compares to the yearly holiday gatherings at your home. Your Mom and Dad were always gracious and loving, and it was super fun to come over and play at your house.

I'm sorry for your sadness and loss. May they pass quickly and be replaced with happy and fond remembrances of your great parents.

In sadness and perpetual prayer,

Mark W. Egan
