Sympathy Messages

From: Jerry Ousterout
Wilda will be sadly missed by Helen and myself. she must hold the Guinness world record in reading and listening to the bible when her eyesight failed her. She looked forward to my Sunday calls making sure we were all in good health and safe.
Father of all, we pray to you for Wilda, and for all those whom we love but see no longer. Grant to them eternal rest. Let light perpetual shine upon them. May his soul and the souls of all the departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
