    Lee was a true friend to me. We were classmates all the way through school. Her passing makes my heart feel heavy. I know she is at peace now. I pray for Wilbert and the family. I know that God will comfort us during this dark hour. JOE & RUBY BROADAWAY

    To the Family, I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your loved one. This scripture brought me much comfort during the loss of my loved ones "May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and gave everlasting comfort and good hope by means of undeserved kindness, comfort your hearts and make you firm in every good deed and word." (2 Thess. 2:16,17) Continue in prayer and faith.
