Nancy, Mike, Patty, and Dave,
Grandma lived a long life (outlived all her classmates from school!). I am thankful she is with her Creator now. I am privileged to have known her these past 14 years. She has definitely left a good impression on me and our family. May God richly bless you as your remember her in the days and years to come.
Nancy and Patty Sue,
So sorry to hear about your mother. Mom is here (Memphis) with us for the holidays and she heard today from one of her friends in New Castle.
Again, sorry about your loss.
Nancy and Patty,
I am so thankful for the time I was able to spend with your mother. She was so happy and comical and always a pleasure to be around. Rachel and Sarah related some funny stories about things they remember when they visited with her.
She was most importantly a person who loved the Lord. She didn’t shy from sharing her faith and hope in Christ. It is an incredible witness by her to have fought the good fight of faith and to know that her salvation lied only in Christ’s death on her behalf.
One day we will sing praises to God for his mercy and grace to us all side by side with her.
