    Our thoughts and prayers are with the Jarnagan family as they mourn the loss of the family patriarch. He took special interest in Bruce and for that, the Hauser family is forever grateful.

    I had the honor of attending Ridgeveiw Baptist Church will Bob and Adella. They loved their church and their church family. My husband Roy and I had the opportunity to get to know these wonderful people and they were such an inspiration to us. Bob was always talking about guns to my husband, who also has a passion for them. Bob was a good man who had a close walk with the Lord. He shared his love for Christ as Adella always did. Many lives have been blessed by knowing this loving Christian man. My prayers are with all the Jarnagan family. My God’s love comfort each of you during this time of loss. God bless.
