Not sure what to say?

My name is Lavada Carson; my husband and I Gene Carson are members of Christpoint Baptist church where we met Ms. Joy Petry. We fell in love with her and were so sorry to hear about Mr. Doug Petry's passing in March. We haven't been able to contact Ms. Joy to express our sorrow and. to let her know we miss her and are praying for her. The phone number and address for Ms. Joy that we were given by our Pastor were both incorrect. I tried calling Ms. Joy and sent her a card both with no...

Joy and family I am sorry for loss. Send prayers to you all. Alvin and Lea Rollins

Sending my sympathy and prayers to Joy, Karl and family. I also have sent prayer requests to church members at our church, St. John. Prayer works. Mother and Daddy loved you so much and enjoyed having Karls help. I pray that God be with you today and all those days in the future as you work through the loss and grief that death inevitably brings. Gods blessings.

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
