    To Nancy and all the family,
    My heart goes out to all of you. I am so sorry to not be there as I am snowed in in Virginia. Knowing that Rondel is there with his Mom and Dad and Phil and Sandra, I am at peace with it. Hug each other and know you are in my prayers.

    Dear Ones,
    How we treasure all the family memories with Rondel. We remember his warm hospiltality and wonderful sense of humor. So much fun we had when we were with him. Such a loss to our Poynter family.

    I (Barb) enjoyed my last visit with him when he showed me his garden, unlike any I’d seen before, and definately not like mine! He had such a green thumb.

    Sharon and I wish we could have been with you today in person, but we were praying for all of you and will keep praying that you will be helped and comforted.

    The best family reunion we ever went to was at your home. Now we look forward to a future even better reunion in Heaven. Love and prayers, Barbara and Sharon
