When I was younger, I would go spend an hour or two with Lenora almost every single day. She was the most Godly woman I know and was a prime example of how a Christian should live. I’m so thankful for the times I’ve had with her. I am saddened that she is gone but am at peace for I know how she longed to be with our savior. Dry Valley has lost a faithful member here on earth but I know she is having a glorious never ending service with God. Watch over us and keep us safe Lenora. Love you always.

This past Christmas season I took my children by to visit Lenora. I wanted them to visit with one of the sweetest women that I grew up under. Lenora wanted to talk about special times that she had experienced at Dry Valley. I’m so glad we had this visit. Prayers to the family!
