  • So sorry to learn of Jill’s passing. My heart goes out to each of you. She was always putting others ahead of herself. She remembered all the employees birthdays at the P.D., and was the first to start donations when there was a need, but always declined when it came to she being recognized. My sincere sympathy to you in your loss.

  • Sorry for your loss. I would like to share Jesus promise of John 5:28,29 “Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, and those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgement.”
