Dearest Frannie, Kimmy and the entire Kness heart is breaking for your loss right now. No words will remove the pain and nothing will make sense of it, but I hope it will help, if even just a bit to know that you are being thought of and held up in prayer as you struggle to find yourself on this path you now travel. May God bless and keep you all as you search for healing.

Kim, Mike & family - we were so sorry to hear of the passing of Brice. We can't imagine what your family is going through. Kyle called to tell us and was crying when he told us. Brice was such a fun loving kid and seemed to enjoy life, especially his times with Cellus. We cannot make it on Wednesday but just wanted to let you know that we are thinking of you.

Sending our love & sympathy at this time of such great sorrow.

Ron & Bonnie
