June was an amazing, strong, and devoted person. She never veered from her beliefs and convictions. She was one of my closest and dearest friends. We always laughed together as she shared her beautiful stories and memories of her youth and her endeavors in life with her beloved husband and in raising her family. This precious friend taught me so many life lessons. Her value to me is immeasurable. I will always talk to her through our Lord as she was a most faithful soul. I will remember her always and my love and appreciation for her time with me was gift I shall carry forever and a day. I love you, June and I’ll see you on the other side.
May you be at peace with our Lord God and be at eternal rest in His loving arms. You will be missed. ♥️🙏
