Lige and Kate Vincent’s entire family have been such an impressive and lovable family to us for many years! It is sad saying farwell to one of that precious family, Gerald! Makes us think of Dr Suess’ quote, “Don’t cry because it’s over, but, smile because it happened”.......... makes us smile, visuliazing Gerald sitting at a table, with a piece of Kate’s chocolate pie!!!!! Prayers for Jenny, kids, grandkids, siblings and other friends and family.
Jenny, you and your family are in my heart and prayers. I wish that I could be there.
God’s blessings and comfort at this time of loss. Thinking of you.
