My prayers and love is with Donna , Linda and Bob. Our families goes back many years. One of my fondest memories with this family is the fellowship we have had with them. In younger years we would go to church along with 5 or 6 other couples and after the service we would meet at one of our homes and have another service . Our children would play and Frank and Mary would discuss the Security of the Believer. Mary lived her faith in God. Enjoy Mary

I'm so sorry to hear of Ms Mary's passing. She was a wonderful kind woman who will be greatly missed. I'll never forget how she took me in when my grandparents passed away right before my high school graduation and even made my dress because my parents had to go back to Tennessee to arrange and attend the funeral. May God keep you strong during these hard times.
Love to all,
