Dearest Janice I can't possible know the extent of your loss, the past year has been very trying on our families, we have seen many of our family go to meet our Lord and savior. Many of my beloved cousin's spouses have went on we cousin's have passed also. I personally believe God is "Picking some flowers" for His garden in the Heavens. Now we are left to feel the loneliness of missing them, when we should be rejoicing that they are with him and waiting for us to join them. May God bless and keep you in the shadow of His wing. Love and praying for You tracy

Wendell was the first neighbor we met when we moved to Murrayville. He was a great neighbor, always helpful in anyway that he could. We always enjoyed his company and kindness. Though we only knew him for a short time, we will miss him greatly. Our loss but heaven's gain.
