    I am so sorry for your loss of this fine family member. I have fond memories of her and Bill as they mentored and encouraged me in our little country church (Bethel) through the 1950s until I entered the Air Force in 1961. When home for visits, they were a rock of faith and friendship. Now on to her deserved Heavenly reward and may the family have peace knowing this and comfort you in your grief.
