There isn't a time in Aunt Beverly's presence when she wasn't smiling and laughing. The laughter around Aunt Pat's table . . . unforgettable. I am so sorry for the pain of your loss and confident the Lord will sustain You with His peace, His presence, and His comfort. Prays and support from Florida to you all. I am with you in spirit! Love to all, Kaye Brown Hurta (aka, Kaye Kaye, sugar lump, lumpy!)
