I'm so sorry for your loss. I'll always remember his smile and gentle spirit. It's been years since I've seen you all and I remember my time with Queen Bee with very fond memories. Our prayers go to your family during this time. God bless you and keep you in His arms and comfort you. God bless you all.

Dear Bev: I am so sorry to see Galen has passed on. I don't know if I ever saw him without a smile on his face. He spent many a day delivering puppet pieces to my home and I know he spent even more time cutting those pieces along with you. We all know he is in a better place with the Lord. My heart goes out to you and the girls during this difficult time. Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. Galen will truly be missed by all who knew him.
