Our sincere sympathy in the loss of your kind, caring & lovely mother who we so enjoyed when coming to Mesa & being with her & you at Doug McMurrys Sunday am Mtg. The last couple of Sunday am mtgs. recently were a memorial of her as others mentioned her steadiness & encouragement she offered with her words & her sweet smile.
Glad she did not have to suffer any longer & now enjoying the benefits of submitting her life to God.
Wonderful to think too of your hospitality extended to us in the past & fellowship enjoyed in your home Cheryl.
Our thoughts & prayers are with you & your families these days & hopiing our paths cross again
With our love & care

No one made chicken pot pie like Oleta! I think the love in her heart automatically went into the ingredients!! She shared that love, and the chicken pot pie, regularly when I was taking care of Julie, my sis…and it not only nourished our bodies it was food for our souls. Oleta was a very precious and loving soul…memories of her are a sweet smelling savor that will last lifetimes. Thanks Cheryl and Glenda for sharing “Mom” with us!
Love & hugs,
