I am so sorry for the loss of your dear mother. May you find comfort in God's Word where He promises soon to "swallow up death forever and...wipe the tears from all faces." (Isaiah 25:8) Until then, please know you are in my prayers.

I remember so well having to always have coffee and treats when I stopped to see Henry and OLinda. Their faith and postive attitude in the midst of health issues was always something you could count on. I pray that you her family feel peace in knowing that she has recieved the gift of God in the gift of eternal life.

To LuEtta and all of Olinda's family - I was so sorry to read of your mother's death. I always enjoyed visiting with her when I was involved in activities at the Waverly Homes and when I saw her at other places. She was a very friendly, caring, sociable woman who was full of smiles and full of faith. I pray that God's peace and strength will surround you and comfort you in the days ahead. Keith
