  2. You have our deepest and most heartfelt sympathy. God knows our deepest sorrows and through the Holy Spirit provides the balm we need to heal. “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” We can all rest on that. In Christ’s love & care,
    Nate and Karen

  3. Sandy and family. Sorry we can not make it to the visitation. Knowing your mom goes back a long way and remember always being greeted by her sweet smile. She will be missed by all here but the glory she now lives gives you peace that is a comfort and joy. May God lift and surround you in the days ahead.
