Knowing we were loved will be our greatest
memory, your strength, your faith, the foundation of our family. You picked us up whenever we would fall, as a child or adult, and taught us we could again stand tall. We
picture you and mom, hand in hand, walking
together in the Promised Land. God’s promise to you of eternity, is trusting Him when He said
“Believe in Me”
