Condolence & Memory Journal


Auntie Ethel, you are one of the reasons I am who I am today. You and Uncle Bill planted a seed and watered it until it sprouted--I am so thankful to have had the both of you in my life as long as I did. God bless you as you begin your eternity with Him.

Ethel, I will always remember the many pleasant visits, laughs, hugs , and your little doggie, Ginger. Love that little girl and wish she were mine. The delicious meals cooked by you will forever live in my memory. Your testimony in Christ was always so vivid. Looking forward to seeing you and Bill in heaven one day. Lord, quickly come.
