So much love and gratitude for the life of this sweet lady. She quickly became so much more than a church member to me, she became like my own family. Her gift was hospitality and she made everyone feel like they were honored guests. There will never be another one like her and no one will take her place. She is what Solomon wrote about in Proverbs 31…”Give her the honor she deserves…her price is far above rubies.” You were honored here but are getting you ultimate reward. I can’t wait to kiss your sweet cheek in heaven. Brett and Craig also send their love.
Bill & girls – our thoughts & prayers are with you – James Louis & Family
