    Dear Debbie, Ryan and Patricia, Our whole family has been so blessed by the Lord and one of those many blessings happened back in 1981 when we first met Dick and Debbie Miller. Dick went on to become our Associate Pastor at our church in Longmont, Colorado and later became our Senior Pastor. God graciously drew us together as family and we have shared many wonderful memories over the years; way too many to elaborate on. However, please indulge me and let me mention just a few: Ryan, birthdays, holidays, trips together to W.W., soft shell crabs, Ice Hockey, Avalanche, Nurse Training and many many more. One very special blessing was when we were talking about God Parents with our children and both Michelle and Donnie both said, “We want Dick and Debbie!” And Dick and Debbie agreed! Michelle and Donnie were so happy and still are! Dick we all will sorely miss you, but know we will see you again in Paradise and what a wonderful reunion that will be! Debbie, Ryan and Patricia we pray God our Father will wrap His wonderful loving arms around you and give you His comfort and perfect peace. God Bless you all! Love in Christ Jesus, Jay, Pat, Michelle and Donnie
