Stephanie S Sawyer That beautiful expression on her face was an understanding
and spiritual knowledge of the closeness of Jesus at hand. I am
very thankful there was peace in her final moments. However, I
understand your profound pain, and you will be very close in my
prayers, Choppy. The Lord will sustain you at this time as you
already know certainly. Yet, His grace is even more profound in
time of great loss. He is a merciful God.
Wood Choppy, Carol Lee is now in the everlasting arms, and oh, what a
place to be! I did not know her really, but she was a familiar
Redeemer face to me as a child growing up. Mom knew her well and
loved her very much. You and the rest of the family will be in
my prayers as you now say goodbye.
Cherie Binns The support for you and the family continues as you do this very
difficult thing of saying goodbye for now.
