My sincere sorrow and sympathy are with each of you. Your loved one was a very special Christian woman. My mom and yours, taught VBS classes together in the early 1960's, and we always thought very highly of her and her values. She has now gone on to her welcomed homecoming, with those she knew and loved before. My prayers are with you, today, and always.
