    • What if love prevailed?
      Our three year old son, Errol, has an incredible imagination. A particular fondness for dinosaurs and role-playing means that it is not unusual to be awakened in the morning by the soft growl of a pretend tyrannosaurus-rex prowling next to the bed. Fortunately, that t-rex still enjoys cuddling under the warm covers and his claws are retractable.
    • Pastor, teacher, friend: COM worker Daniel Peters passes
