May the Lord rest His Holy Comforter upon Flash and Family.

As The Lord has taken care of Ann, so shall He you.

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul:

In Jesus' Name,

This precious little lady was so good to the kids that were in school with her kids. She completely went above and beyond every school year for us. One of the best mamas ever and will be missed many times over.
