  1. Janie and family–My sympathy on the loss of both Ray and Mildred, my co-worker with the City of East Lansing. After Mildred’s retirement I spent many delightful visits enjoying their stories and Raymond’s martinis. My best to you all.

  2. Condolences to the Schafer family. Our thoughts and prayers go out to your whole family. Psalms 147:3 says God, “heals the broken hearted, and binds up their wounds.” May God bring you comfort and peace.
