  • Pam, Shelly, Tracy & Terry,
    I’m so sorry for your loss. Some of my best childhood memories are of growing up across the street from all of you, and your mother is a wonderful part of those memories. You’ll all continue to be in my prayers.
    With Sincere Love,
    Bonnie Raver Simmons

  • Jesus Comforts His Disciples
    14 “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God[a]; believe also in me. 2 My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. 4 You know the way to the place where I am going.”

    • Thank you. We know that she finally healed and free of her earthly body. She is singing in Jesus’s choir now.
