Thank you for posting the funeral. We enjoyed singing "It is Well" with you all and seeing some of the service. If my mom's health was better, we would have been there in person, but thankful to be there in heart. With love and prayers for God's comfort, Marcie Roberts Long and Ruth Anne Bruce Roberts
