We are saddened to read of the death of your dear mother, Susan. Rod had visited her with Keith sometime in the fall. How blessed to know she is with the Lord and you will be separated only for earthly time but will be together forever in God's heavenly time. May Jesus comfort you with the assurance that He is everlasting life for all who believe in Him.

Pat, Sue, and family, we sorrow with you in your Mom's (loved one's) death. We know that Lola is now in the presence of her Savior. She was such a good friend to us and we had many wonderful visits with her! We shall always remember her reciting one of her favorite verses in class, Psalm 118:24, when Doug asked her to quote (which was quite often). We shall miss her, but PRAISE GOD!, we shall see her again on that GLORIOUS DAY! She is in the presence of her Savior...praising Him!
