"My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever," (Psalm 73:26)
May her soul run free in Glory. And you all be comforted in knowing that she is with our Lord and Savior.
We pray that the Lord will be with you all during this time of mourning.

God bless,

Jason and Tisha Carter
