    I’m so sorry for your loss. What a powerful woman of God! I got to talk with her about our faith a couple of times over the years. Those conversations are memories I will always cherish. Praying for you all.

    Scott, Doug, Greg and Paul – thinking of you today. I just keep thinking that all those people who used to come to Grandma and Grandpa’s on Sunday are almost all gone. The time has gone by fast hasn’t it? I know you are going to miss her.
