Jay & Chris,
Nancy and I are so sorry to hear about the passing of your Mom. She has been a life-long friend to the Adams and a wonderful neighbor to my Mom. Even though I've known your Mom most of my life, I really got to know her much better since she moved to Church Street. I'm so thankful for her friendship and for her support to us as well as our children. We will miss seeing and talking with her on the front porch.

Although we are unable to attend the service for your Mom, our thoughts and prayers are with you and your families.

I was so sorry to hear about your mom. Annette will be remembered fondly- especially for her beautiful smile and laugh. We spent a lot of time working on
school and church projects when you and my son were in elementary school. Both of your parents were so helpful in the building of our church. Keeping your families in my prayers.

My deepest sympathy goes out to the family. May you be sustained by the Bible's promise that soon our loving heavenly Father will resurrect our loved ones to a perfect world where no one will suffer sickness, pain or loss anymore.

"And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away."- Revelation 21:3,4
