  4. Sure had some good times with you, at work and at play.
    I would not live in Chesterfield, but for you telling me about Lynette selling the house.
    Loved seeing you and Gayle from time to time.
    Go miss you, my friend.
    Rest peacefully in the loving arms of Jesus.

  5. Patti Smith says:

    O Gayle, your children, your grandchildren and great grandchildren, the One who formed you says, Do not be afraid. When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you. For I am the Lord, your God. Do not be afraid, for I am with you. Teet was one of the kindest people I’ve ever met, with a smile that brought JOY, deep joy. When I looked out my door or kitchen window as John and Teet were talking, my heart was filled with a special feeling, it was genuine. Although Teet was in our lives for a short time, John and I miss him deeply. Our prayers for Gayle and their children will continue. GRACE COMFORT STRENGTH. With love, John and Patti
