Mrs Iva was a very special lady. I met her at Cornerstone and was very impressed by her loving attitude. She would save her bread to feed the birds. Always ready to share with others. She will really be missed by everyone. Surely Heaven will be a better place with her there.
Love & Prayers to the family!
