  1. Michelle Prunty, Truman says

    You didn't know me but I heard so much about you from all the days that I spoke with your wife. Your all she ever talked about and she worried about you so much. Now that's no longer. You are in the arms of the Lord wrapped in his love and glory. Rest in peace until you see each other again.

    Prayers to all
