Sharon, there are times when words cannot express what we feel...and the little ways we try to help seem so small...yet somehow through the love and prayers of friends, moves the almighty hand of God. May God hold you in the palm of his hand and comfort you with His everlasting love.

My prayers are with all of you. My husband and I delivered Meals on Wheels to her on Wednesday and I always enjoyed visiting with her prior to Covid19. God bless you
