    My thoughts and prayers are with Kenton, Doug, and their families during this difficult time in their lives. I have fond memories of Uncle Marion going back many years. It is hard to accept that he is no longer with us, but he definitely is in a better place. I wish I could be there for the funeral, but circumstances prevent it. Kenton and Doug, your Aunt Jenny also sends her condolences.
