Mary joined our Grace Sunday School Class at Broadmoor Baptist Church when she moved to Shreveport. What a wonderful Christian Lady. She enriched our class so much as she shared her many Christian experiences.

Mary was sweet, out going & didn't seem to meet a stranger. We know she's happy , she loved the Lord and to be in His presence now, we can only imagine the real joy she is experiencing.. She's getting a great big hug from our Lord Jesus right now. One day we will see her again and experience that true joy also. We send our love & prayers to the family.
