Johnnie Ray, I remember when we were in basic training together, you received a care package from home with some of your mother’s famous peanut butter fudge! You shared some of that with me! I visited with your mother before going to Vietnam, she shared a prayer with me. What a special lady she was. May God grant you and your family peace, and comfort, as you share memories of your mother.

I’m so sorry for your loss. If this can be comforting to you, just know that she is no longer suffering (Ecclesiastes 9:5) and now she, as well as others who have died, awaits the wonderful resurrection that Jehovah God has promised (Acts 24:15). I hope this message brings you comfort.

I always loved Aunt Evelyn and her coconut cake. She was an amazing lady and always had something nice to say about everyone. I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers.
