I would like to send my condolences to the Savoy Family upon reading about your recent loss! I hope that this message of comfort and hope helps your family take refuge in prayer at Psalms 57: 1, and know that your loved one is alive in gods memory. At Luke 20:37,38 may the God of comfort, comfort you at this time. God has made the loving provision for a resurrection, so that you can see, Mr. Savoy again and such hope Jesus told us about is found at John 5:28-29. Once again, I'm sorry for your loss!
Kathy, I am so sorry for your loss. May you find comfort in the fond memories you and Aaron made together over the years. Peace be with you and your family.

To Mrs. Kathy and Family, we extend our deepest sympathy to all. He was a great teacher, leader, and friend that we will never forget. He did so much for my children when he was teaching at Northwest. I will never forget our episode in Alexandria for the FFA convention when Kevin became State President. That I have to thank both of you for, I was so grateful to have you both. We will keep all in our thoughts and prayers. If you"ll need anything PLEASE let us know. Love to all. Mike and Dolly Moreau
