Dear Elaine & Denise, Just wanted to tell you both that my family and I are so sorry to hear of your Dad passing. Even though Quenton and I are second cousins, in later years we became good friends. Every time I ran in to him somewhere, he always had a big smile on his face and he'd give me a big hug. He was a good Christian man. I pray that our Heavenly Father send you all peace and comfort during this sad time. We'll be keeping you all in our thoughts and prayers. Love to you all.

My sincere condolences are with you and your family. John 5:28,29 says "The hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life" God cares for you and those who have fallen asleep in death and promises to restore our dead loved ones back to life in the near future.

Always a smile, always a kind word. That's what I remember about Mr. Quenton. He and Miss Jean put up with an awful lot of foolishness from the youth group when we took over their house every weekend. Their love and hospitality meant so much. Mr. Quenton was an excellent man, and I'm sorry to hear of his passing. My prayers are with you.
