    When a loved one dies family and friends feel a great loss. I have done a lot of volunteer work in Frankfort and I remember speaking with Mrs. Hibbard. What a fine lady! I am so sorry for your loss. As a volunteer it is my hope to share a comforting thought. In the Bible book of Job 14:14,15 a large door of hope is opened. It says, “If an able-bodied man (or woman) dies can he (she) live again? You (God) will call and I myself (the deceased) will answer you. For the works of your hands you will have a yearning.” Yes, the Creator longs to bring back to life those who have fallen asleep in death. What a wonderful promise and sure future for our dead loved ones. May you find peace and comfort in this time of loss. We express our deepest sympathy.

    Ned, Sheryl, and other family members: Our thoughts and prayers are with you as you rejoice in the celebration of your mother joining that “great cloud of witnesses” in Heaven and carrying on with God’s work in that heavenly realm. It’s probably never easy to let someone go, but easier knowing where they are going. We pray that God sends His Comforter to you and grants you all peace, grace and mercy, as He surely shall do, in Jesus’ Name. Thank YOU and Praise YOU Lord, for blessing us all. AMEN

    Nancy, Sheryl, Ned & Di
    So sorry to hear you lost your mom. I have know her since you guys lived in Kirklin, and that was a long time ago. My folks always called her Ruthie Botts, so that is what I called her. She was quite a gal, and I know she will be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
