Our sincere condolences to the family. We love T and will always remember her kind and gentle spirit. She always displayed the love of Christ to us. It's good to think about her being whole now, enjoying the presence of her Savior, Jesus Christ!

"T" was a woman among women. She conveyed the grace of royalty, the soft-spoken character of a true saint, wisdom beyond the greatest philosophers, and a loving nature equaled only by Jesus Christ Himself. She was too good for this world, and the Holy Spirit already shaped her soul years ago to fit right in with the church triumphant. She will probably make heaven a better place. A life well-lived and she will only do greater things in eternity. "The pain now is part of the happiness then. That's the deal." My deepest love to the entire family.

Our utmost sympathies and love to all the family.
We loved and trusted John and T. and are saddened to hear of T’s passing.

T was always so kind to us. We laughed from surprise when she told us her name “T” stood for “twelve”, her being the twelfth child in her family! She has been missed from the church body and will be missed on this earth, but we look forward to seeing her in glory in the kingdom to come.
