Prayers with parents

I want to thank Seth Marshall Pettengill’s parents for what I am sure was a very painful obituary to write. I am so sorry you had to endure what so many families now days have to deal with: drug abuse. You have done a great service to this community by writing what you did.

I am almost positive Seth is smiling down on you, thanking you for honoring him this way and by being truthful to what he had become. He is healthy once again and with his sister, Morgan, in heaven. I hope you can find some peace with that. My prayers are with you.
