Our beloved Betty, we are so sorry to hear of the passing of your mother. Our church has been praying for Esther for some time. Our prayers are with you during this time of transition, and our heartfelt sympathy goes out to you. May the word of God bring you comfort during this time..For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith; Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing (2 Timothy 4:6-8) We love you Kevin & Bell Noble
