    Barbara and family,
    My deepest sympathies to all of you. May God be with you at this difficult time.

  2. AC & Yvonne Carver

    It is always hard to find the right words to convey condolences when friends lose a loved one. So allow me to use this excerpt from Lessie Harvey of MD: “Celebrating the life of those we love is God’s special gift to us. God allowed Elisha to walk and talk with Elijah before a chariot of fire separated them. Saying the final goodbye is painful, yet all who die in Christ are only temporarily separated from those they love. Because Christ lives, so will we. That is the believer’s hope in time of death. Lord, help us to release those we love into your loving arms. Give us strength and faith to believe we will see them again. Amen.” Barbara and Wade, please let us know if there is anything we can do to help during this time of loss. In friendship…AC & Yvonne

    Aunt Rosa Lee sure was a sweetie. It was so wonderful to be with Uncle Wayne and Aunt Rosa Lee and see how much they loved each other. She organized the best Christmas parties. My husband, Johnny, and I treasure the unique Snow Couple, Carolers, and Santa & Mrs. Claus people that she made as special gifts. We all miss her. Our condolences go out to you.
