    Robert,Renee' and Harrison, We are sorry to hear of the passing of your Dad. It's so hard to understand why people are taken from us, but find comfort in knowing you were a special part of such a well-lived life. When the Lord calls our loved ones home, he leaves a gift of memories in exchange. When your heart is empty, fill it with those memories that will make you smile. Always remember that those memories are the legacy of his love to you. Just know that our thoughts and prayers are with you all at this time. With Sympathy, Larry McClure Ed McClure Teddy McClure Jerry McClure Tim Morgan Jody Olinger Billy Brownlow Zeke Lester
