    Our thoughts and prayers are with each of you in this trying-time of great-loss. Peggy, I feel for you and will be praying for you in time ahead. Cling tightly to our God’s loving, unchanging and unfailing hand; He will be with you each-step of the way. I will not tell you it is easy but I will tell you He will not fail to be right there. I wish we could be there but heavy and busy-workloads at OSU plus I am grounded due to the vulnerals from high-numbers of coronavirus here. Grieve-as-you must, not-as-others will tell you is right, wrong or indifferent. Travel the new-pathway He has and cling tightly to His unfailing and unchanging-hand.l Love and prayers to all ~ Jackie, Beth and Kelly Penland; Ty, Lacey and Conner Quadrelli; Chris, Mariah, Reagan and on-the-way Koe Thomas due in December.
