Dear Kathy and all the Sivey family,
My thoughts and prayers are with you at the loss of your father. I remember meeting Charles and all the Siveys in the fall of 1971 when Kathy and I meet as dorm roommates at Bluffton College. You have not heard much from me during the past 20 years, but I have very clear memories of visiting the farm and talking with Charles. I immediately knew that he was a Christian man of great integrity and devotion to God, family, and farming. God blessed all of you with a special husband, father, and grandpa. Life is terribly hard, but God is always good! My love to all your families,  Gayle

I am sorry for your loss. Since I was a chid, Charles Sivey sat on the north side of the santuary on Sunday morning. The loss will surely be noticed by the Church family. I am praying for your family at this time of bereavement.

I wish to express my sympathies for your family's loss.  As a child, I spent time at the Sivey's, as Kathryn's guest.  We went to school together, and I was a member of the same church community of which the Siveys were pillars.

My deepest sympathies
