My thoughts and prayers are with the family in this time of sorrow. II Cor. 5: 8- We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body ( this physical body is merely a house in which the real person resides) , and to be present with the Lord. ( Death holds no terror for the Child of God.) May God bless you all. Sincerely in Christ, Rev. Michael Farmer

I will always remember Jewel for her sweet smile and soft spoken way. I never heard her speak nothing but kind words for anyone. She was a loving soul and heaven truly gained an angel.
