    Mr. Heirigs,<br />We are sorry for your loss. At times like these we need to draw close to God as James 4:8 states, but please know that God cares about you all and He gives us wonderful promises at John 5:28, 29 and Job14:13-15 . May God strengthen your family at this time.

    I went to high school with Rainy and have been trying to get in touch with her again fo many years. Just saw this notice. I am so sorry to not have been able to see her again. My condolences to her husband and family. I have many great memories of Rainy and of my visits to see her in Sedona. We had a great visit to Hawaii when we were 18! I will always have Rainy in my heart.
