  • Steve and family,
    We are so sorry for your loss.
    So glad we got to see Ethel on Palm Sunday at Covenant.
    She will be sorely missed, and I will always remember that Texas sized heart, and
    quick wit and mischievous smile!
    Ethel always went above and beyond for her friends, her Lord, and was so proud of her family.
    I will always hear her singing on that back pew, loving and praising the Lord.

  • Dear Uncle Steve, Greg, Timmy, Daniel, Barry and Shelly,

    There are no words to covey the sadness I had when I heard that Aunt Ethel passed. Immediately, I thought of her smile, contagious laugh and her zest for life. I recalled all the ‘Happy Times” we all shared growing up. Her life leaves behind a legacy of love and devotion not only to her family and friends but to God.

    My thoughts and prayers will be with you all at this time of mourning and the days ahead. We were all truly blessed to have her touch our lives in a special way.

    May God comfort you all.
