Memories Timeline


  1. I am so very saddened at the passing of my dear cousin, Wymie. I have been reflecting on the closeness we shared in our family. We grew up in small towns not far from each other, but it was in our adult lives that we really became closer and always kept in touch through letters, cards, visits, and phone calls. I shall miss her dearly! To her dear family, I extend my heartfelt sympathy and prayers.

  2. My sincere condolences to the family at this difficult time. May you all seek God for comfort, peace, strength and support (2 Cor 1:3).
