I delivered Meals on Wheels to Mrs Tennill while she lived at Grace Place, she had beautiful plants out front, she always spoke of her family.
May God comfort you at this time.

What a great lady she is! Her ability to love others and laugh at herself stand out to me. We had a hard decision to make at one of our FBC business meetings. I was concerned how she might feel at the difficult decision that was made. As she left she stopped ,looked me in the eye and earnestly said “I love you.” No condemnation ever-just love and laughter!!
