I have many memories of my aunt. She bought my Easter dress one year. Precious lady. I know her and uncle homer loved each other so much. So glad she’s with him right now. Our prayers for the family.

Dear family, our prayers are with you as you deal with the sudden loss of your precious mother. When I learned of your mom’s passing, many happy memories of our families eating Sunday lunches together on the farm flooded my mind. I am so grateful that we, as cousins, could spend happy, carefree days together when we were children. I remember one particular New Year’s Day that we were visiting your home, and your mom had the washer and dryer going. My mom mentioned that there was an old wives’ tale that it was bad luck to wash clothes on New Year’s Day. Your mom laughed and said, “I have to wash clothes every day.” Your mom was a wonderful wife and mother. She devoted her life to her husband and kids. She lived for her family. Her love for each of you was evident in her acts of service to you. 1 Peter 3:4 instructs wives to have “the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit.” That is exactly the type of woman your mom was and why she will be so greatly missed. With our deepest sympathy.
