Mrs. Ruby and Family; It is hard for me to find words at this moment in order to express how much Mr. McDonald and you have meant to me. You accepted me into God's house, showed me love of a real family (watching the McDonald Family together was always a reminder of my family years ago) without judgement. Mr. McDonald will always hold a special place in my heart and as with my own Dad, the cowboy hat will always be a reminder of them both (each time I wear mine, I will especially think of them).My heart aches for your family at this time, but please know I love you all very much and am praying for your comfort as I know one day soon we will all be together again!In Christ Love,Shirley

I am so sorry for your loss. Mr. Kermit was such a dynamic man. I did not know him very long but the little time I was able to spend with him and the rest of you, his family, was very special. Ya'll have a very close and loving family. My prayers are with you. I hope the wonderful memories of Mr. Kermit and the knowledge that he is with our loving God will comfort you in time. God bless Mr. Kermit's soul and comfort his family.
