Greg Moyer & Family:

Each of us have experienced the grief and loss of friends, co-workers and family members. The Navy Recruiting Command N35 Proactive Rough Riders regret the loss of the Patriach of the Moyer Family. The bible teaches that in times of trouble or sorrow, we must trust in the Lord for he is our protector. At this time of bereavement, may the Moyer Family receive the blessing of our Lord and continue to share their love for one another.

Yours in Christ,
Charles R. Diggs
