We are so very sorry for the loss of your mom and maw maw. We pray you all find peace in knowing that she is no longer suffering and is reunited with her love in heaven and together they will have a beautiful garden I am sure of that.

The loss of a cherished loved one is the most devastating experiences a family can face. At times, the loss may seem unbearable. Please know that there are family and friends who care and more importantly Psalm 34:18 tells us that "God is near to those that are broken at heart. He is the God of all comfort. God will comfort you during this difficult time of grief. Our prayers are also with you and your family.

Williams Family

Judi, Connie, Doug, and families,
I was so sorry to read of Shirley's passing. You remember that your Mom and Dad were great friends of Larry's and mine...oh, the laughs and adventures we had. And of course, you know how much we loved you "children"! I may not make it to the funeral (it's 8 hours) but please know that you will be in my heart and thoughts.
With love for all of you

Martha Hobbs
