    Our beloved sweet sister DOROTHY ANN MCCRARY. You are truly sorely missed. Heaven’s gain is our loss. Word cannot express how we feel and miss you.
    Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
    Psalms 23:4‭-‬6 KJV
    Rest in peace as we wait for promised return of YAHSHUA.
