Dear Joe,

Here is my prayer for you and your family.

Heavenly Father we pray for the needs of Joe and Family. We let our prayer request to be known to you according to your word Phillippians 4-6. We cast all of our cares upon you Lord, for you care for us, according to your word 1st Peter 5-7. I called upon the LORD in distress and the LORD answered me, and set me in a large place. The LORD is on my side, I will not fear, what can man or evil do unto me? Psalms 118:5. Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, but as I give unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid John 14:27. I hope things will improve with you as time goes on.

Sincerely, John Novak

I was sorry to hear about Mrs. Bellia’s death. I grew up on waddles run, with my twin sister Linda. We had known her for many years.I will always remember how good she was to our motherJeanne, she was a good friend to her, and they shared coffee every day while we were in school. She once gave my mother a pair of shoes ,when she seen my mom’s had holes in them. She had a very kind heart. My mother really cared for Mrs. Bellia, and they used to write each other up till the time of my mother’s death from cancer. I’m sure that she and my mother are now sitting in heaven, once again sharing a cup of coffee and talking.My family and I couldnt make it to the funeral, so I had to send this note to you, to say we were sorry to hear of her death. We moved back to waddles run in 1994, & visited her, but then we couldnt find out where she had moved to. Love, Brenda Phillips Albert, and Linda Phillips Lohr and our families.
