We are sad to hear the news and for your loss, but know that Vic was frail and that his faith carried him into the hands of our Lord. He was a sweet neighbor whom we thought a lot of, and we were grateful to have known him (among other things, he was a good instructor about gardening, and his meticulous care of his home was inspiring). He was a good husband to Olga, and we know that his family–Angela & Garry, whom we knew–were dear to him, and that he was faithfully cared for. We pray for your comfort, for we know you will miss him.

Bill and Paige Melton, Will Melton
