My dear Stone family,
Robin and I were so sad to hear of the passing of our dear Mother Mrs. Bertha Stone. We cannot imagine how difficult this must be for you now but please trust that we care about you all and we shall continue to keep you all in our prayers. From the first day that we moved into the house next-door, Mother Store never fails to express love and kindness toward us. We thoroughly enjoyed our time together of prayer and Bible study. As you all know Mother was a walking talking Bible and she loved Yashua and looked forward to spending eternity with him. The Bible teaches us that to be absent from the body is to be present with the lord therefore we have no doubt that Mother is in the presence of our Lord God The Most High.
