I always remembered her kindness and her joy in living. Her faith was an inspiration shining like a candle into the darkness. Jesus called us to build temples not made with human hands but eternal in the heavens. Her love will continue to shine out. I give thanks to God In Jesus the Christ for her witness.

Mike and Sherry,
Sorry to hear of your mom's passing. This has been a horrible year for our generation to lose a parent. Stay strong, just know that she is at peace, and reunited with her loved ones.

Maxine and Bob were the kindest people I have ever known. They were my mother-in-laws (Jessie Kempf) neighbors and were so wonderful to her, Curt and Charlie. Maxine always had a smile on her face, have missed her at Wal-Mart lately. Rest in peace to a wonderful couple! Condolences and prayers for all their family and friends.
