Condolence & Memory Journal

I am so sorry to hear about Gwen's passing. I saw Lisa Queen-Shepley last night at small group and she told me. I wish I could have been there for the service. There are many childhood memories that include Gwen. She was so faithful to us young folks at Carl. Lisa remembered the puppet ministry. Wow! I had not thought about that in many years. I know God is your strength and comfort in this time and He will share in your grief and turn the sorrow into joy.

I love you all,

I'm so very sorry for your loss. I remember Mrs. Easterling and my mom doing each other's hair many years ago. I know we did some fun things together, and I wish I could remember more details. But your mom's friendship with my mom spanned many decades, and was very special. I know she will miss your mom tremendously. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.

So sorry to hear of Mrs. Sterling's passing. Fond memories of Doraville Baptist days. A grand reunion with all the precious souls from our childhood was had, I'm sure. May your precious memories give you all peace during this difficult time.
