“The beautiful, sweet lady I met many years ago who came into the Courthouse Annex with her husband, Earl, & graciously gave rides to many for Dr’s. appointments. What dedicated volunteer, never too busy to help. When our parents were at Sunnyview, it was always fun to meet up again for a hug & visit. Surely there is a special place for her in God’s Kingdom! Sending blessings to her family.”
