To Art and Greg and family,
Kathryn and Dave became new friends of ours in 2010 when Ronnie preached at Glenwood. They were constant encouragers and we were privileged to visit Kathryn after her move to the DFW area. What an inspiration she was, how she loved her family, and how she longed with readiness to receive her reward and eternal home! We rejoice for her! We will miss her and know you will much more. May sweet times with her flood your memory banks with smiles in days to come and may the Lord hug you tightly with His Comforter and Compassion. We love you, Ronnie and Marsha White
