Kathy, Bill, Mark, Craig, Roy and families,
It’s never easy to lose your mom - no matter how old she was or how old you are. Praying you are comforted by knowing she is with our Heavenly Father, safe and well in His Presence. But even so, we are sorry for your loss here on earth.

Dear Family,
So saddened to hear of Jean's passing. Was always pleasant to see her at LWC in her pew. She always had that smile for me whenever we would meet anytime. Losing your Mom here is hard but gaining an Angel in heaven is so much more than we can understand. I am sorry for your loss. Having her here for this long is quite a blessing for each of you. I am sure she is enjoying heaven right now and probably singing with everyone she meets there. Please know that I am truly sorry for your loss as well as many others are also.
