I am sorry for your loss Sarilyn . I am sorry that I was not able to attend. I was at work and could not attend. Your Mother will be greatly missed. It was a great pleasure to get to know your Mother at church and being able to take care of her at her home. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Janna.

Saralyn,I am so very sorry for the loss of your precious Mom. My family sends our deepest sympathy to you.Your parents were such a powerful influence on so many. There are far too many find memories for me to begin to recount them. Praying that you are comforted by many while at “home” to say your farewell. I know you realize you will see them again and they gave you many strengths to rely on. I wish I could have been there for you at this difficult time. We live in New Orleans and I didn’t know until last night. I ask Anne Phillips and Lucile Bodenheimer to share my contact info with you. Please call when you can. God bless and keep you.Dollye
