  1. Loved the times when I visited in the summer, when you were sitting on your front porch and we would be watching the Robins get worms out of the ground. You always said that you didn’t like Robins, because of this. You will be missed. Say hey to Jesus for me.

  2. Sorry for your lost it’s always hard when a family member dies John 5:25 helps us to appreciate that soon we will be reunited with our loved ones so there is hope for the dead and that brings us comfort to know that we will see them again

  3. Glenda and family, So sorry for the loss of your sister. My prayers and thoughts are with you at this time and the days to follow. Ron and I are both thinking of you and Lovick and the rest of your family. God Bless.

  4. Kenny, Sharon and Melissa..
