My deepest sympathies to your family. I remember so well your mom and how sweet, hard working and committed to Jesus she was. What a beautiful reunion she is experiencing with her Lord and Jack. She lived a life worthy of the welcoming words "Well done My good and faithful servant". May God cover you with His peace and comfort in the coming days and weeks ahead. Love and prayers for family. Mert(Mohr)

When I think of my church I think of people like Lorraine.
So faithful, kind, and selfless. Such a servants heart and always a smile for me. I am thankful for the godly women that were my examples during all my life at Good News Baptist Church. She was definitely one of them! She will be missed in her pew near the back. May the family be comforted by the many wonderful memories of their family life together with her.
