I am immensely saddened by the loss of a great friend & sister in Christ. Although I didn’t know her a long time, she was such a delight to spend time with, facing life with grace & humor. She welcomed me to church and was a good friend & example of how to carry on after I lost my husband of many years, and to follow our Lord. She was very proud of her family and I know u are proud of her. You are all in my prayers, may the Lord comfort u with many wonderful memories.
