    Ms. Mayme and I became friends during her stay at the Harrodsburg Health Care. She was a delightful lady. We shared some good times. What a blessing to have known her. As sweet Mayme is at peace with her Jesus, may his mercy comfort and bring peace to you at this time.

    Sorry I couldn't make the service, I was out of town when we saw where she had passed. We shared some good memories with her when she came to some of our family dinners with Bunny and Lillian.

    Our warmest sympathies goes to you and yours in these difficult moments. May you find strength from the words of 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4 3 Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial with the comfort that we receive from God. What a loving God who cares about each one of us. He didn't intend for us to grow old and die. He thus has made the SURE promise of a resurrection right here on earth when it is restored to a beautiful paradise (Psalms 37:9-11, 29; Acts 24:15; Isaiah 55;11). Can you see yourself welcoming back to life your loved ones? What a joy it will bring all of us. You can go online to JW.ORG and find out more about this resurrection. Also, you are invited to the memorial of Jesus death that will be celebrated this year on April 19th after sundown. You can find out the time and place in your area at
