  1. My deepest sympathy to my family members in Ohio. Unfortunately health reasons prevent me from being there with you. Aunt JanieBelle was the last of my many uncle’s and aunt’s which leaves me very sad. I will miss her and family, please know that she is resting in the peaceful and loving arms of our Lord. No more worries, no more pain, no more tears. Love to you all!

    Patsy and Julia I am sadden to hear of Aunt Janie’s passing, but I know to be absent here is to be present with the Lord. Take comfort in knowing she is no longer suffering and remember the good times. I am sorry I am not able to be with you in person but I am with you in prayer and wishing for you the comfort of Gods never ending grace and mercy today and the days to come. My love to you all.
