Dorothy. so sorry for your loss. When I first joined the Nameoki Methodist Church in Granite City, Il., you were some of the first people that I met. We had wonderful Bible Study night with Pot Luck. Such wonderful Memories with lots of people too.
I still have my first Book with all the pictures we use to take, some of those were of activities we all joined in. I write on each picture of different Prayers sent up for that person. As I Pray each morning when I read my Bible, you and Jack were always in my Prayers along with all our other Friends. R.I.P. my Friend and Dorothy may Peace be with you. Your Friend in Prayer, Kay. Amen
