Eddie, Joetta , Sue and family, Thinking of you all. Prayers for the family.

Prayerfully, Kimberly Bray (Danese, WV)

The legacy they leave behind will not be forgotten - it shows everyday in their beloved family. You have heard the old saying that an apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Well, it may have been a...
