    To the Pomeroy family, So sorry to hear about Mr. Pomeroys passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you during this time.

    Mark I am very sorry for the loss of your Dad and best friend. I never knew him, but if you are a example of whom he was, he had to be a great man. Keep the good memories you had together, I know that’s what he would have wanted. You are in my prayers, hang in there because all things will turn out the way God would want them too. His will, not yours.

    Many memories of cousin Donnie came back to me this past week, and I feel lucky to have them. My sympathies go out to his brothers and sisters, and all family and friends. Mark and Marla, I know you and your children are going through a difficult time, and words aren’t going to take away the pain. But I hope your memories, and knowing that your dad is now with your mom, are of comfort to you.

    So many memories. I keep telling myself Donny is with Suzanne. It makes me feel better. You were such a wonderful husband. You were so loving, kind, & understanding. Both of you did so much for your community with no one even knowing. I am so proud of knowing the 2 of you.
