To the family The pain of losing someone at this time is indescribable, but please know that comfort can be found in the scriptures. At Isaiah 25:8 the prophetic promise is that God "will actually swallow up death forever, and will certainly wipe the tears from all eyes. I can truly say that scriptures like these comforted me. sincerely Ron Padlo

I worked with him at the chair factory back in 1966 he was always fun to work with. He even took me to the airport to go to Germany to join my husband who was stationed there. May he rest in peace. Gale Anderson
