Carnell and Family,
I am so sorry for the loss of your Mom. Although I didn’t know her well,it was obvious that her bright light shined to all in her welcoming smile.I remember,as a child, meeting her at St.James with Miss Dot. They were women who let Jesus’ light and love shine through them. Mrs. H will be missed by all those whose lives she touched over the years.
