I was sorry to read of Marth's passing and I'm sure that Mom and her are enjoying a grand reunion in Christ at the Right Hand of the Father (Eph. 1:20).
I'm so sorry to hear about Harriet she was a terrific lady. She will be missed.
Prayers of comfort to Sherri and Harriet's family. She was such a sweet lady!
So very sorry for the family's loss. Prayers to you all
