Obituary

Psalm 23: 4 " Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me."

All is well, Safely rest… God is nigh.

I am so sad to hear of our loss. I hope this scripture will provide some comfort for all during this difficult time. "Don't be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand". - Isaiah 41:10
I will continue to pray for comfort and strength. With Love, cousin Sherry
