Sam-I am so sorry for the loss of Zona. I was just thinking of her today and thought I would try and contact her. Then I found out she had gone on to meet Jesus before me. I loved the time we had together. She was a precious woman.

Sam and children! Please accept our sympathy. I knew Zona when we were school-age; then again when we went to the Greenville Church of the Brethren.
We will keep you in our prayers. We are in Florida and won't be able to be there.
