Dear Salyer family:

It is with great sadness and yet with greater hope that we offer our condolences at such a time. Funny how as kids in the early 70s we didn’t think about these things or the effects these events place on our hearts but yet here we are 50 years later knowing these days happen. My wish for you is have comfort and hope for the return and restoration of your parents and your family in heaven. May your mother Rest In Peace and may we all be ready.


David and Edie Ellis
