  1. Elaine, Gary and family,
    Our hearts are so saddened by your great loss. Your mother was such an inspiration to all she met. I remember when we pastored at Park Hill and each Sunday morning she and your daddy would come into church and sit on their favorite pew…right in the middle section and about 4 or 5 rows from the back. Always a smile on their faces and a big hug for you. We loved them so very much and our love goes out to you and your precious family at this time.
