Gran, you were such a special person and we will miss our visits with you. You were such an inspiration to everyone and your devotion to your family was beautiful.
So very sorry to hear about the passing of Gran. She was a pillar of Berea Pres.Church and a wonderful born-again believer. She was an example to all who met her as to what a true Christian should be. Her passing is our loss but heaven’s gain.
