My love and prayers are sent especially for Mrs. Dymond. No one knows exactly how hard this is for you except our God and Savior. My dear Hal and I would have celebrated our 45th anniversary in August, but he went Home just 6 weeks ago. Please know my children and I will continue to pray for you and your family.

My father (Hal Reyburn, a Phoenix RPC elder) also passed away on a Sunday morning, just a few months ago. I'm sad for your church and family, but glad that Mr. Dymond and my father are closer to their heavenly inheritances than ever before.
