Dear Holland Family,

What an impact your family had on my high school years. With Howard, Martin and Brad all in music with me; especially Brad and I had some fun memory-making experiences.
May your memories of "the best of times" overshadow the heartache and sadness in the "worst of times".
As Christian believers, with faith in Jesus alone to save us, we can hang on to the hope of being reunited someday in heaven with all those who share that faith.

May that hope be yours as well.

Blessings in 2020.

Brian and Marcia [Goeller] Davis
