But rest assure that very soon, Jehovah will reunite us back with all those dear one we have loss. (John 5:28,29) Until that to me, cherish all the wonderful memories that you have of Mrs. Carol.

Dear Debbie, Brian and Zac, Your mom and grandma was a wonder sister-in-law who I was blessed to meet in the late 70’s. Donnie truely loved and treasured his sister. She will leave a void in my life. Instead of flowers which do not last, I am making a contribution to the American Cancer Society in Carol’s name.
