    I’m so sorry for the loss of your dear loved one. The loss of a loved can be so overwhelming. But know that the God of all comfort (2 Corinthians1:3,4) knows your pain. By going to his word, we are assured that we’ll see our loved ones again. (John 5:28,29) My sincere condolences.

    Tim, Eric, Matthew and family, I am so sorry to hear of Kathy’s passing. She and I had many laughs and even shed a few tears during our years at Eagle and Frito Lay. She was kind hearted and loved her family more than life itself. May God bring comfort to you all during the difficult days ahead.
