  1. To B. J. and family,
    Know that I am praying for you. As you cherish the memories, continue to lean on God – the source of our strength and the One we can talk to when everyone else is sleeping. May God strengthen you and give you the peace that surpasses understanding that Philippians 4:7 speaks of.

  2. To My Dear Friend Betty Adedoyin and the entire Keenan Family:
    I was saddened to hear of the passing of your sister, Annie Ruth. I pray the beautiful memories of her life will comfort the family during this time of sorrow and the days ahead. I am also deeply saddened that I could not be with you at this time because of a cold and the threat of the viruses
    I will keep each of you in my thoughts and continue to pray for comfort and healing. With each new day please be reminded that “earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal and may our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ give you HIS peace, a peace that passes all understanding.”
    With Deepest Sympathy,
