I am sorry for the passing of your wife and mother. She was a GREAT LADY. Due to my problems I wasn't able to attend the services but I had you all in my prayers.
Betty was a great teacher and I loved to hear her pray. She was a true example of a Christian Lady.

Davd and Family,
Your mother was always the lady...sweet and kind. I know you will miss her, but in the days to come, please remember that the Lord will comfort you and you will see her again. For now, she is in another room that you cannot enter yet, but she lives with Him who gave us life. May you find peace in these sad days.
