We only have the sweetest memories of our auntie Carrie. Even though we lived very far away we kept in contact. John and Carrie took the time to visit us in the many distant places where we lived. Our visits to their home were always very hospitable. John; I am confident that the Lord’s presence will console you and that he will guide you as you continue to serve Him.

We have only the sweetest memories of our auntie Carrie. Although having lived very far apart our families have kept in contact. We have wonderful memories of us visiting their home and John and Carrie visiting us in the distant places where we have lived. It was a pleasure to visit last year.
