  • Dear Cheryl & Tom,
    I was saddened to learn of your Mother’s passing. She was such a kind person who always had a smile to share. It is hard to see that generation slipping away from us. I believe she was welcomed home by your Dad and the many other Nazarene saints who have gone before her. Can you just imagine the prayer & praise meeting up in Heaven? My prayer is that you both and your families will be filled with God’s peace.
