Sherry, Greg, Randy and Scott: Your mom and dad always meant so much to me. As a teenager I saw their involvement at church and with their family and was impressed. Your mom always had a smile and happy greeting for everyone. Through the disappointments and losses that came into her life, she always stood firm for her Lord.
