  1. Dear Ones,
    Sorry this is a bit late, but our computer has been down! Just wanted to send our love to you! Even though not in person, may you somehow “feel” the love with which this is sent. When those we love and care about, are hurting, we hurt with them. We do care and share this difficult time with you. But our sorrow is certainly not for Millie, for she is safe in the Arms of Jesus. Many were waiting to “WELCOME HER HOME”! She will now never again know pain, confusion or sorrow! We all have memories in our hearts and minds which will always keep her with us! Millie was a gracious, loving, Christian lady who blessed the lives of many through her years. She will always have a special place in our hearts. We sent a memorial to Thunder Road Ministry in her memory. We know she would approve having her memory honored to help spread the Lord’s message to those who so desperately need to hear it. We love you all! You remain in our thoughts and prayers!
    With special love,
    Verne and Nancy

  4. Dearest Russ and Sharon and Family,
    Pastor Jay shared the news of your beautiful mother’s passing. We were all praying last week, excited with the news that she was gaining weight. We are sorrowed and deeply moved by her death, as we all in the congregation sensed your deep love and caring for your Mother. We know she is with the Lord, her health restored and filled with immeasurable joy. Please know we love you and have you in our hearts to remember all of her dear family left here without her. Ken and Ann Garrison
