Dear Jim and Don,
Your mother was a very “special” lady to me, we met in Fieldcrest, I would see her when I went to get the mail and I soon learned we were both Christians and we became close friends. I feel like I know you two because over the years I heard much about you. She was so proud of you. Then the last year or so when I would go see her I would not be able to get her awake, one time though she was awake, she was in like their church service and they were singing hymns and she knew every word of the hymn with out looking at the book! I was so amazed and thanked God for this blessing that she could do this at 97 yrs old. But Praise the Lord she is with her Savior and her dear Harvey now! Martha’s friend, in Fieldcrest
