Ruthanne, we were sooo sorry to hear of Jarrod's death. We remember you so fondly when you were attending church at Mechanisburg. I, (Doris ) remember how cute I thought you little baby was--that was when you only had the first one. Anyway we do send our sympathy. We pray for you and pray God will comfort you. I know though that the pain of missing Jarrod will not lesson soon. Lovingly, Joe and Doris Carr
