Roger, Debbie and family - Please know my thoughts and prayers are with you all during this difficult time. Death is hard enough to handle without the restrictions in place from the corona virus. May God be with you all.
Tammy (Berrier) Ward

To the family of Mrs Wheatley and especially to one of my guardian angels, Lera Harris, we are so very sorry for your loss ... God has taken another one of his angels home so there is no more pain and suffering. She is among her other family there and in God’s presence with tears of joy streaming down her face because she is with our Lord and Savior. May she forever Rest In Peace in the Lord’s house. She was a good and faithful servant...
