  1. So sorry, Mary, Shirley and Family. Mandel was a very special person to his family and others. Praying The Lord’s comfort now and in all the long days
    and long nights ahead. Just know God knows best and Mandel will be spared whatever is before us in this crisis. God cares for all of us and He hears and answers prayers. Love you.

    Another one of our esteemed WWII Veterans received the ultimate promotion. Mr. Sharp put his life on the line for our country, and our appreciation is due him and all the others veterans. May God bless his family. Billy and Gail Booth
