    Elsie, we are very sorry to learn of Tib's death; however, from what you had said it is a blessing. Life no longer had any meaning at all. Just know that you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. I don't know if we can get to the service or not, but you know Bill is really sad about losing one of his friends. Lots of love from our family to yours.

    Elsie, Tab, Irving, Sharon and family members: We are so sorry to hear of Tib's passing. We know he is with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. Tib did so much for Perseverance Church, the Ruritan Club, and his many friends and co-workers over the years and he will be greatly missed. May God bless you all.
