I am sorry for the loss of our Mother. I will always have the fond memories and friendship we shared at Calvary Community Church. We all set together and had great fellowship with each other. Now she and my mom, Frances Christopher are together serving our precious Lord. I send my prayers to all of you and knowing God will give you his strength and love to sustain you in the coming days.

My condolences to Craig, Crystal, Lori, and the Rogers family. I didn't spend much time with Mrs Rogers, but I know she was kind and loving to people who mean the world to me, and so I'm grateful for her life.
