To Tarbie, Wanda, Jerry, Yvonne and Danny and familes please know our thoughts and prayers all with you at this precious time.

    Yvonne, Wanda and family, we are sorry to hear about your mom, Ms Pearce. My girls Megan and Mackenzie, husband JJ and I have been visiting your mom and sharing scriptures since Megan was a baby! In fact, they always loved it when we visited her because she always gave them homemade cookies. At one point, they called her place the “Cookie House”! She was a wonderful lady. And how wonderful how you guys have taken care of her after your dad died and while she has not been well. The Bible promises at Acts 24:15 and John 5:28-29, a resurrection of life. I hope you find comfort in the promise of seeing our loved ones again! Donna
