Lynn, Elaine, I'm so sorry to hear about your mother's passing away, one thing for sure we know she is in the arms of her Heavenly Father. The short time that I knew your mother I loved her and I would always call her Mom. I pray that the Lord will take you both and the whole family and wrap His big loving arms around each one and comfort you in this hour of need. May his Holy Spirit encourage and give each one peace of mind. Your friend and brother in the Lord, David Huskey

Beautiful Marie
What an honor it is to have been able to know you and talk with you all these years at church... you blessed my heart by asking me to type up scripture for you in a large font so you could see it better, your book was full of handwritten scripture references that you had used and needed for your hardest times...My daughter helped me to type up the many many verses you asked for so in approaching me in this request you blessed me, my daughter and then you sharing with your friends the printed copies, you touched many many lives with Gods living word, planting seeds..... when I handed you the first pages you were so excited and exclaimed oh my how great I have friends who will love being able to see this so good. It was my honor to serve you in a way that helped you to spread Gods word and to talk with you about how great the scriptures are even if you have read them many times. I am honored to be apart of your Church family and your sister in Christ . In our deep sadness my spirit is full of joy for you to be able to see your Saviour and your husband and your children once again I know from our conversations you longed for this day. You will be missed sweet lady but I will rejoice for you, for I know where you are !!!!
