“My life is an example to many, because you have been my strength and protection. That is why I can never stop praising you; I declare your glory all day long.” Psalm 71:7-8



Fern Raley

As you probably already know, our dear friend Fern is leaving us to move into her daughter’s home in Tennessee. We will miss you Fern! As she moves, she is not able to take everything with her. There are things which will be auctioned off on-line, including a baby grand piano. Caring Transitions is handling the estate. If you are interested you may go to the web address:
