Orville just saw on the Facebook page from the golf course about Louis.  We are really going to miss him.  I"ll miss seeing that white pickup pull up about 9 in the morning and those guys putting their golf clubs in and away they went.  They always had such a good time whether the score was low or high! Good man and good friend.

I’m so sorry to hear about the loss of James. I can’t imagine how difficult these times must be for you loved ones. Please remember and take hope in the message Jehovah God gives us in Acts 24:15, which says “there is going to be a resurrection”. There's more information on this promise that God gives us at jw.org in both English and Spanish. My deepest condolences.
