  • Dear Kathy and family, I just happened to be checking the Crescent on the web and saw your mothers passing. I also as I read saw that your father passed just 2 weeks before. My heart goes out to all of you. I know my Sharon lost her father and mother within 3 mo. of each other and that was tough on her so I know this is a tough time for you all. I pray for all of you. May our Lord comfort and draw you close to HIM during this time of grief in your lives. Coach Leininger
