  1. I am saddened to learn of the passing of my cousin, Ben Sawyer.
    The times I spent with Ben and Ida Mae, his sister, were few but very fun and memorable.
    Your feelings of loss this year can only be imagined. We are so blessed that Jesus Christ has overcome death that we shall rise from the dead as he did. This plus God’s forgiveness through Christ’s intervention, give us all great reason to be of good courage, serving one another.
    Best wishes to all.
