Roy and Family
My love and prayers are with you all at this difficult time, but we all know she is in a much better place, sitting at the right of the Lord, and in no more pain and we can take away from her passing that if people know you and your family then they know how much you have loved Jesus. My sons Paul and DJ also asked me to pass along their condolences as well.
In Christ's Love,
Donna, Paul and DJ Brunow
