It's with a very sad heart that we write this message we were praying for a different outcome. But we don't always get what we want we know God is always in control. As much as our hearts are breaking it is comforting to know that Uncle Orville is in the arms of the lord.
Our sympathy and prayers to each of his girls, Betty and all the family.
We love each of you wished with all our heart we could be there but at this time all we can do is remember the good times, and keep you all in prayer.
With Love,
Alton and Sherri

God Rest in Peace Uncle Orville, you will sorely be missed. I love You Alton ,
