Dear Matt and family,

Carmel, Mindy and all of the Drayer Family, please know that you are all in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. Bob & Carmel have raised a very special family and Bob had much to be proud of! I have such fond childhood memories of playing with Mindy and “hanging out” at the Drayer house. Bob was always so much fun to be around and he will surely be missed. May God grant all of you the comfort and peace that only He can give. Cherish all the wonderful memories.

Our family’s thoughts and prayer go out to your family. I went to school with Mark and had met Mindy a few times but see her on tv. I lost my mother last July unexpectedly and can understand what you are going through. Just remember went you feel as if you can’t go one more step, that is when the good Lord will carry you. May you share and enjoy memories you hold that will never replace your loved one but they also cannot be taken away. They are forever. Prayers to you all.
