My thoughts are with you and your family

I was shocked to see the obituary for your Mom. I will never forget our time together as roommates in Warrenville. She and I learned a lot from each other. She taught me how to be more on the quiet side and I taught her how to be a little more assertive. We had wonderful Bible studies at the house and my family came to love her as I did,especially lil Rick. I am so sorry for your loss and I pray for God's comfort and peace to you and your family during this difficult time.

Dear Mom/Best Friend/Confidant, there not enough words to describe all that were and always will mean to me. You lived such an amazing Godly life, and even though you touched countless lives throughout your life span, I was the one who was the lucky one. I was able to witness it best, because I had the honor of calling you Mama. Oh Mama, we miss you terribly, and I am so lost without you, but I know that you are so happy now!!! You are finally with your babies that you waited for so very long to see. I know that there is such a family reunion going on in Heaven right now. But most importantly, you're are finally with Jesus. The one you lived your entire life to please and serve. Mama, I love you so much!!! We'll see you very soon, to separated no more. To spend eternity together!! I love you my sweet Mama!!!

Prayers for you Lynn and family. Although she's now healed and in her heavenly home, praise God...no more sickness or pain....still I know you are hurting and lost without her. She is a wonderful woman who made many beautiful impressions on so many people's lives. She will be missed. I'm thankful I got to meet her, know her, and became family to this awesome spiritual loving lady. May God comfort all of you and give you peace in your hearts. Love all of you and your family very much. Brandy Gregory

I would like to express my deepest sympathy to the family. During this difficult time, God is near to those that are broken at heart, and those who are crushed in spirit He saves. Psalms 34:18
