I'm thinking of all of you, praying for some peace in your hearts, even though these are sad, difficult times. I so fondly remember playing Hand & Foot with your Mom and mine every Thursday. Your Mom was a special person and a blessing to her family. She will be sorely missed by so many people. Her memory was raised up in prayers at today's worship service. Everyone at Simpson is praying for her entire family.
