    Angie, our deepest Sympathy to you and Henry. Warm memories of your mothers wisdom, gentle ways, her understanding and kind and thoughtful praise. I enjoyed and looked forward to seeing her on Friday's in our pray group. She had so much love for our community and the children. Holy Mother of God pray for Jean now at the hour of her death. May God's peace and love help you to celebrate and understand that we are part of something better, truer, and deeper. Love you. all.

  3. To Henry and Angie-

    I want to express my deepest condolences on the passing of your mother. She was a warm and generous person, and a dear dear friend to my mom, your aunt Burdell.

    These events in life are often difficult to navigate, and we are left with few words, but deep emotions. However, we can take comfort in our faith and trust in God, and know that He never leaves us or forsakes us. He is our anchor and peace when we experience the storms of life. He loves us in a way that surpasses all understanding. He is the 'I AM' that lead Moses, inspired the prophets, and changed Saul into the apostle Paul.

    You and your entire family are in our prayers.

    In your quiet moments I offer these scriptures:
    Psalm 18; Proverbs 3: 5&6; Ecclesiasties 3: 1-8; 1Corinthians 15.

    Gods Blessings to you.

    Jeff and Family
