  1. Mark, sorry to hear about your lost. I remember your parents and my parents playing euchre late into the night and you, Tammy, Butch and me playing. The good ole days!
    You and your family are in our prayers.

  2. For the Seward family. I am sorry I can’t make your Father’s visitation. I want you to know how much I enjoyed both your parents. I attended FBC with them and just enjoyed talking with your Dad. They were faithful folowers of Christ and their home church. My brother, Lyle Camp, worked with your Dad many years at ADM. Lyle would always speak highly of your Dad “Gib”. It is my honor to keep your family in prayer as you grieve the loss of this special man. Sincerely.
