Ruth and family, I was very sad to hear of your mother passing, but I know she is rejoicing in heaven today. She was our oldest living member at River Bend Baptist. My dog, Chance, and I visited her each week for five years until he developed hip dysplasia last year, and could no longer navigate the tile floors in the home. May God grant you peace and comfort during these days as you make the final trip to PA with her. Nancy Holzworth
