    I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your mother. I have so many fond childhood memories of time spent at your house. I remember our parents playing cards and all the shared meals. Ms. Addie was the best cook! Praying that you will all find comfort in your memories and the knowledge that we will see our parents again some day.

    Our thoughts and prayers continue for Mrs. Petrus’s family. May God’s Word and His Holy Spirit (the “Comforter”) provide strength, comfort, and assurance.
