Not sure what to say?

I met Jean and Rita at Heritage in 2004. I sat next to them a few times and Jean had the sweetest voice when she sang. They both came to my lifegroup at my home. Jean was always smiling and quiet. But when someone couldn't remember all the words to a Bible verse or a hymn, she did and would quote it. She knew her Bible well. I am sorry for your loss.

We are so sorry for your loss, she was a great lady!

Rita, Monte, Roger, Bob and Jeanne, I am so sorry to hear about your mother's passing. I wish I could have been there to honor such a sweet and loving lady. Some of my favorite memories are of spending time at your home. God blessed her with a long and fruitful life. My prayers are with you all. Much love, Tymma

Rita & family: Your Mom was such a wonderful person, always welcoming and seemed to be such a happy person. I'll always remember her lovely laugh. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
