  1. Donna, Mike and Doug. I am so sad to hear about your mom dying. She was such a strong woman of God. When tribulations came, she just shook her finger at troubles and said you’re not getting to me, I am standing with God Almighty and then she plugged on. She was so giving and forgiving to so many people. That mischievous look on her face in her obituary picture is so very her.

  2. Mike, Donna and Doug,
    Your mom’s love for children and her servant heart have been a beautiful testimony for our Lord through the years. I’ve been blessed to know her.
