Memories & Condolence

  1. Ann Cooper says:

    John, Matt, Heath and Family,

    I am so sorry to hear about Brenda. I knew her from First Baptist Church years ago and then we lost touch. Re-connected on facebook and have talked to her. It was good to re-connect and catch up on our families but she also told me about what was going on with her and told me not to be sad but rejoice that she was going to see Jesus. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. God bless you and He will be your strength through this time. In Christian Love, Ann Cooper
