Dear Kim, My love and sympathy to you at this time. How happy she is singing with her Lord. Love the time we spent at the neighborhood bible studies. We also went to the movies together and she made popcorn. Loved making her homemade tomato soup, oh how she loved that. She was a very special person. Loved by many

To the Family:
May the God of comfort (Psalm 83:18) strengthen the family during this difficult time in your lives. Those who are sleeping in death (John 11:11) God keeps in his memory because they are precious in his eyes. Look forward to the fulfillment of the promise at Acts 24:15, “ ... there shall be a resurrection of the dead...”
