    KC was in my new Financial Advisor group. He welcomed me with kindness and truly open arms. He LOVED Elyse and always talked to me about her achievements—gave me tips for my first trip to Hawaii coming soon. She and the boys became endeared to me. I wish I had held them more, spent more time, called more and just taken more advantage of the short time we had. Prayers continue for the family. KC was a WONDERFUL person. Thank God that he knew the Lord. We’ll pray for and support Elyse through this time. See you there, KC.

    with his constituents. He would talk about any subject especially a good story. He was very informed and excellent with advice on investing.

    Oh my heart hurts for you. It is really hard to put into words the heartfelt sympathy I feel for your family at this time. I know you already know that he was a good man. I know hearing things like God has a reason for everything does not make you feel better but one day we will understand it all. There is a time to be born and a time to die. Just hold on to hope that he is with the Lord.
    God is close to the brokenhearted, call out to him. Those precious babies, oh sweet Jesus, I’m going to pray fervently for them, I will also pray for you. Just know you are loved and God is right by your side. The whole community is praying for you.

    I really have no words to express the sorrow I feel in my heart upon hearing of KC’s passing. I remember the day he was born ! I remember him coming out to Coleman as a kid when my parents had a social gatherings and playing in the hay in the barn. I’m not sure why things like this happen in life , but God always has a better reason for it than we may ever know. Micah and I are praying for you.

    With deepest sympathy,
