Aunt Sarah & Family,
Aunt Sarah was such a blessing to us all. Becky and I had the privilege of worshiping with her at Waterford Campus almost every Sunday these last several months. Of course she requested her favorite hymn, "I've Got A Mansion Just Over The Hilltop" She was always a shining example of a Christian witness. Wow! What a legacy! We have many happy memories with her. She was a very gentle soul. We will miss her. She is in her mansion. Praise the Lord.
Tom & Becky Lindley

So sorry for your loss. Hope that you can find comfort in the wonderful promises found at Revelation 21:3,4 3With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them. 4And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.
