Diane and Family; Larry and family, I am so sorry for the passing of your mother. Sandy and I have so many memories of her and your dad thru the years when we all attended Unity Baptist Church together. I know the passing of parents is "very" hard. Please know that each of you and your families are in our prayers and on our hearts. Praying God sends comfort to each of you in the days ahead.

Love you all,
Sandy Shirley and Family; Jerry & Debbie Anderson and Family.
