Joanne, I am sure I am one of many Naperville Chorus members who share your sorrow at the death of your father. Please know I will be joining you and your family in thought and in prayer tomorrow and in the days to come even though I’m not able to attend the services. God be with you as you celebrate his long life and continue his legacy by supporting The Salvation Army. Carol
