  • What a wonderful lady Priscilla was! What a joy to be around. She will be sorely missed! She won’t be forgotten by her husband, children, grandchildren, nor her church family. My prayer is that the God of all comfort would comfort your family at this time. For the Christian, to be Absent from the body, is to be Present with the Lord. This is but the end of a Chapter…the page has turned…something even greater is being written in regards to her, and her walk with God. – God Bless!
