    Randy and Judy, nothing ever prepares us to lose a parent, no matter what…that’s our parent. But we know that her illness has been a long hard fight and shes won the battle to rest in Jesus. Our prayers out to you all. Love yall.

    Nancy and Luther were two of the first people we met when we moved to Ranger in 1987. They were so kind and supportive. Nancy was my Sunday school teacher for many years. She was a role model and I learned many things from her. She let her light shine. So sorry Rick, Carol and Randy for your loss. Prayers are with you and the family. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™.

    Your mom was one of the sweetest women I know. Sheโ€™s now in that circle in heaven with family celebrating and serving God. May God wrap you in his loving arms and give you strength and endurance during this time. Prayers for your family.

    Nancy was one of my motherโ€™s (Verna Graham) best friends. She was such a sweet Christian lady, and my family thought the world of her. My deepest sympathies for the family.
