    So sorry to hear about Barb passing especially only two weeks after her brother Ron passed away. Barb was such a sweet and gentle person. Your family has gone through a lot of sorrow lately and you are in my prayers.

    Jerry and family – Words cannot express how sorry I am for the grief you have been put through these last few weeks.
    Please know that my sympathy is with you and prayers are said that God will sustain you, give you comfort, peace, and calm.
    He knows what is best. I was so sorry I had to miss Ron’s funeral due to weather and now I’m not sure I’ll make Barb’s if the
    forecast proves correctly. In that case, I’ll watch online. God be with you all!

    Jerry and family, our prayers are with you as you grieve the loss of wife, mother and grandmother. We have so many good memories of times together at Elim Covenant, Bay Lake, and visits with Russ & Ethel, as well as Harold & Ruth. And we thank God for every remembrance!

    May the words of a favorite song bring comfort with this truth:

    Come, hopeless hearts, do not despair
    Hide away in the love of Jesus
    For ten thousand joys await you there
    Hide away in the love of Jesus

    Hear Him calling your name
    See the depths of His love
    In the wounds of His grace
    Hide away

  5. Joy Taylor says:

    Jerry and family, I am so sorry for your loss. I am praying for each of you for the Lord’s comfort and peace. I have so many fond memories of conversations with Barb and always have been shown kindness and love from each of you. May the Lord bless each one of you during this difficult time. Love you, Joy Taylor
