Sending much sympathy and love to the Riddle family. I was in South Berkeley for a short time many years ago, but remember Br. & Sister Riddle's kindness. May Jehovah continue to strengthen you. Psalms 27:14

My condolences to your family and you, Loretta. Thorton was a good brother. I think fondly of him when I think back to when I lived in Berkeley. Waiting for when Jehovah makes all things new again so we can see our friend again.
