    I am so sorry for your loss. Please know that you are never alone. You can find much comfort in the Holy Scriptures which assures us at Psalms 34:18 that God is near to those broken at heart and crushed in spirit. Please accept my deepest sympathies.

    So long, Jenkins. I will miss our talks, our friendly arguments, our memories of people, places, and things, and most of all, Howard Academy's "Class of 1952".I wish I could have talked to you one last time. I wish I could have talked to your children. I pray now for your soul, and for the comfort of your family and friends. Only one unique you.
