We were saddened to hear of the passing of Ernestine. She was a friend of everyone. Perhaps it will help you to heal from your loss if you look at John 5:28 & 29. This passage makes the promise of a resurrection that Ernestine will be a part of. All our love, Del & Mary Weare.

It is with fondness I recall meeting Ernestine at Kedge in 1961. She was a mom to us girls who were away from home for the first time. She was a hard worker. I regret I never saw her after that summer but was able to know of her life from family. I extend my sympathy to all members of her family and know you are very thankful to have had her in your life for a long time. May she rest in peace and we have been blessed with her presence in our life.
Leora and family, thinking of you all at this sad time.
