My sincere condolences to the Lovegrove family. My great aunt Adele Askew was very fond of Mrs. Lovegrove and the entire family. I remember visiting them with her as a child. Mr. & Mrs. Lovegrove always had something from their garden ready for my aunt and Mrs. Lovegrove made some of the most beautiful and unique crafts I had seen. Sending up prayers of peace and comfort for the family.

I will always remember the positive attitude of faith that Mrs. Elizabeth showed when facing any challenge! When I am tempted to complain, I need to remember her good example of trust and hope.
