    Dear Stone family -I can still see Lucy’s smile and hear her singing “Satisfied” in my memory. Her’s was one of the first faces my parents saw when they came to pastor at the old Roseland COG (now Journey Life Center). My condolences to your family and may the Comforter grant you peace in the days ahead. As the old song says, “I’ve got more to go to Heaven for than I had yesterday.” -Randall Richards
