  • So sorry for the loss of your loved one. May she rest in the arms of our Lord and may the family find sweet memories to comfort and nourish your souls.

  • Chris and family — so sorry to hear about Janis. Carol Maver told me the funeral service was wonderful. It’s not easy to lose a family member but the Lord knew best. Miss going to church — perhaps when we start up again you can visit some Sunday. Pastor Drew is doing a wonderful job keeping things going in this troubled time. I’m happy you and your girls were good to care for Janis. Praying for you and your family. — Emily Stephen
