She took great joy in playing board games with her children and grandchildren. At Corbin Christian Health, she always had a jigsaw puzzle going for friends and family to help with as they dropped by to visit.

    Ramona Delaine Steve and Marva I’m so sorry to hear about your mom I wish I could be there but I’m in the hospital. I loved your mom and dad so much.Your mom treated me like a little brother She would sit and rock me when I was little and cry holding my ears trying to ease my pain I had such bad ears she would hold hot water bottles on them We would sit and work puzzles when I had to stay inside out of the weather .When her and your dad started dating they’d take me.We went skating bowling I had so much fun with them swimming in the lake Vada would drop Papaw and me off up one of the mountain to hunt then come pick us up later I had a great time with your parents they were just perfect I really loved them and miss them.It breaks my heart that I can’t be there with you all You are in my heart and my prayers. God bless. Love you guys Alvin

    Delaine and Ramona just want you to know that we grieve with you in the loss of your Mother. Heaven’s gain but your loss. Arvilla and I have been there and know something of what you are experiencing. But, time will help and God will show himself more than adequate NOW and in the future. Practice Proverbs 3:5-6 in these days.

    Praying for you and ALL of your family.

    Pastor Lowrie and Arvilla
