    To our Nephew Rick, his lovely wife, Liane, and your household, Grace and Peace be to you and famly. It is the providence of God to have brought us together as a family. Considering the many challenges of life, our struggles “ups and downs,” lying down at night and early rising in the morning; “yes!” we can truly say: “weeping may endure for a night, but “Joy” cometh in the morning (Psalm 30:5).
