Sandy and family my deepest sympathy for your mothers passing.

Helen will always be that example for me of a godly woman. It is hard to keep our speech free of negative words but even more so when one is a close family member of the pastor. I never heard Helen speak a critical word about another person even though there were times the words would have been true! When I encountered difficulties, she was always a source or encouragement reminding me of God's Word, to pray and to trust God for wisdom instead of reacting with my emotions. I am thankful for the blessing of having had her in my life. My prayers for you and your family in the days, weeks and months to come are for God's peace and comfort, which I know you are already experiencing.

Sandy and Pastor John,

We are rejoicing with you on your Mom's homecoming, but are sad at the physical loss of a wonderful woman of God and her words of encouragement. We are glad that we had the opportunity to get to know her; and look forward to seeing her again on Glory side.

Praying for all of you, even though we know where she is, not being able to share things with her daily takes time getting use too.

Love and Prayers, Scott and Candace Buck
