    My thoughts and prayers are with the Grismore family. It was a blessing to have Wyn as a neighbor. My balance and mobility problems prevent me from attending the funeral services. Ken Redd

    Praying for your family in this time of loss. I knew Win though Echo Ranch Bible Camp, and he was always so kind and helpful. Praying for God's comfort in this difficult time. Psalms 116:15
