Patty, Mike, and Family:

When I received the call this morning that your precious mother had gone home to be with our Lord my heart was saddened for all of you as I know how much you'll miss her. She was a very special lady and loved her family with all her heart. Now, she is with our Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus to whom she was so faithful and loved so much. I will never forget her friendship through the years and how close we were when Ray and I were in ministry at Ivy Memorial Baptist Church. When I needed a friend she was always there and I knew I could call or come to her for Godly advice or help. I loved our visits together through the years. She was a blessing to many others as well. I will forever cherish my memories of her and you.
With love and prayers,
Cherrie Fowler
