May you find comfort in knowing that your loved one is with God — resting in perfect peace — such the reward for a woman as she. Mrs. Richman has touched our lives in such special ways, just as she has touched so many lives in her work and life in Jesus.
The years go quickly by and soon we leave planet earth. Ethel has been an inspiration in my life since coming to East Liverpool in 1948.
She will be missed.
