Wayne, Gayle, and families, I am so very sorry for your loss. Janet and I were very good friends in elementary school and beyond, as you know. Wayne, I appreciate your letting me know about her illness. Ironically, I had just prepared a card to send to her today. Your last message to me made me think she had improved. Prayers for peace and comfort for all of you. I am so sorry. Mona Saunders Gunn

Amy 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) Kevin and Pastor Bell Noble
