Dear Brenda & family,

So sad and shocked to hear about Jon. We happened to be in Delaware visiting my mother and had just left for Florida when the news hit. We wish we had stopped by but the timing did not allow. We think back to the times we spent together, in Service, At meetings, at the going away party for us at your home. So many happy memories. We are sure we kept some photo of those so in the near future we will dig them out and share with you if we can get contact info. We all look forward to the time we will all be together in the new system. Then we will have another BIG party. Right now Peg and I pray that you are given the strength need to weather this terrible storm and know that our prayers are with you. Jehovah's perfect memory will very soon undo all the causes of sadness we experience. Stay strong.

All out Love

Mike & Peg DuPhily
