John, Beverly, Judy and family, I want you all to know how sorry I am to hear of your mother's passing. I have such wonderful memories of visiting Uncle Jack and Aunt Edna as I was growing up. For a few days I was able to spend time in a loving Christian home which helped plant the seed of the way I wanted my own husband and home to be. I did get to send cards occasionally to your Mom after she sent me a Christmas card one year. I was thankful to have a few times to let her know of those memories and how much I loved and appreciated her. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. I know she is home and all is well. I want to share the following quote with you: Death takes the body. God takes the soul. Our mind holds the memories. Our hearts keep the love. Our faith lets us know we will meet again. -Copied Kelly’s Treehouse
