Wes and family,

Just got the word about the loss of our dear friend Alice. My Mom (Helen Mihills Gabbert) and I have such good and fond memories of the time Alice spent with us and my aunt and uncle (Marlin and Dora Mae Jensen) during her high school years. As well as all the visits the 2 of you made with us in North Dakota and in Wall. No more pain or suffering for Alice and we pray that your pain will be sustained by our dear Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. God Bless you all.

Jeanne, Roger and Allen,

We are so sorry to hear about you mother, but also rejoice with you as whe passes from this life to her new home with the Lord! A mother's love is so special and cannot be replaced. Our prayers are for your memories of her love to fill that void and that God's peace will surpass all comprehention; Phillipians 4:5-6.
