Dear Marti, I can't tell you how sorry I was to hear of your mother's passing. She was such a sweet and kind lady and I will always remember her for that beautiful smile that she always displayed. Your mom was a beautiful person, inside and out. I always admired her tireless energy- nothing ever seemed to slow her down. Peace I leave with you. My peace I give to you. Not as the world gives to you. Let not your heart be troubled neither let it be afraid. John 14:27 Thinking of you, praying for His grace to cover you. With love Susan Medlin
