  5. Larry and Jane, We are so sorry for your loss. You and your family are in our prayers. Darice and Tammy

  6. As former chaplain at The Baptist Home, Ironton, where her son Larry is President, I extend my heartfelt sympathy in this loss. God nave gave us life eternal here on this earth, but was sufficiently loving that He gave us a way to have life eternal through His blessed Son, Jesus Christ. Romans 8:28 has been my standby when inevitable difficulties are confronted.

  7. I never had a chance to get to know your Mother, but I feel I know a great deal about her, just from knowing you. I have been amazed many times since "losing" my parents that I continue to see them–in myself, in my children and even in my grandchildren. My prayers are with you as you deal with the strange mixture of grief and joyous triumph that come with the passing of a beloved Mother/saint of God. Russell Keeling
