My sympathy in the death of J.D. King. He and I visited many times on his farm and in meetings in Burkesville and other places. He used to attend all the UK educational meetings in Cumberland County. He was always inquisitive and extremely friendly and courteous. I am very glad to have known for many years.

I am so sorry to hear of the death of your father. I always thought so much of him and your mother Barbara. I'm so sorry that I did not get to come to the funeral home to express my sympathy. May God enfold His loving arms around you and give you peace at this sad time. I can truly sympathize with you as I have lost both of my parents. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
