Condolences

We loved Bell so much. What a dear! We will miss her and her prayers for us. She was warm, loving, and always ready to encourage folks in the church. She was indeed a woman of faith. We are so very glad the Lord sent her to our church years ago. It is good to know she is with Jesus and her husband Bob. How happy she must be!

I met Ora a few years ago and instantly formed a bond with her. She was one of the most beautiful kind hearted woman I’ve ever met. My heart and prayers are with her family. I know she’s no longer suffering and with those who she loved and missed dearly but she herself will be missed.
