    This note from PGR member Jim Rudd in Taylor, who originally put the family in touch with the PGR.

    “I spoke to my friend Judie (John’s sister), and she wanted me to let everyone know how impressed the family was by the presence of the PGR. They haven’t stopped talking about the wonderful PGR members that were there for this service.”
