“For this God is our God for ever and ever: he will be our guide even unto death” I’m so sorry. Aunt Wanda will be sadly missed by all her family and friends. But I’m sure there was a glorious reunion.

Jim and Mary Catherine, I am very sad to hear the passing of your mother. Your mom was the person who first brought the word of god to our young minds with the church at Brooks Run. All the Bible class and events in the basement of church and at the preachers house. She was so kind and I will always remember her and her teachings. It was really a blessing to have grown up around all of your Family at Brooks Run. Jim we all had fun and enjoyed playing at you house, hearing Mary on the piano.Your mom was a blessing to MANY of our young minds! Rest in peace Wanda!

My Mother passed away in June at the age of 91, joining my Dad who passed away at the age of 87 in Feb, 2010. Now we are left to carry on their legacies until we are all reunited when our times come.

Mary Catherine, I knew you better than I knew your brother, but we all experience a tremendous sense of loss when a parent passes on. We also take strength knowing that they taught us to honor them not only in life, but also when they are looking down on us from Heaven.

My prayers and condolences are with you and your family during this tough time. Trust in Him to bring you through them once you mourn their passage.
