Mike, Kandus, and family… our prayers, thoughts, and condolences are with you in this time of sorrow. May the Spirit of God comfort you all during this time.
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles.
May He draw you especially close during this time of sorrow and comfort you with His promises.
Kay and Mike,
I remember so many good times with your mom and dad at First Baptist Hazen and visiting in our home. Even as a child, I remember watching Miss Faye and my mother with their heads together, speaking in low voices—wonder what they were up to? Surely they have reconnected in their heavenly home.
I am praying for you because I know she will be missed greatly.
