I have so many memories. Juanita and I have picked peas, fished, and ate fish!. She shared some flowers with me and my brown thumb hasn't killed them. Juanita was a wonderful Christian woman. She had a kind heart, and the sweetest spirit. I always felt welcome there. W.L. maybe she can straighten Thorney out up there in heaven. I would think though that Jesus has already done that. I didn't know about this until this past weekend, so didn't get to come to the funeral. God bless you all. I pray God will give you comfort and peace.

Love in Christ's name,
Janice Ray

My heart is hurt for her passing but it is hurting even more for what you all are going through at this time. We pray that God supply His comfort and joy through the Holy Ghost now. Sister Juanita was a precious and special person. There was not one time that I asked for someone to give a testimony that she refused. She would always tell how good God has been. Her work and dedication that she had for the Lord and the church will always be remembered.

God bless,

Pastor Paul, Meagan, Alyssa, and Emma
