Memorial Service..

First, I can't thank you all for your kind words, prayers, offers of a listening ear and more. Right now there are friends and family in and out here....but I know soon that things will calm down and as it becomes more "quiet" I will need those listening ears. So know your offer is appreciated and not taken lightly.

We are having a memorial service for John on Wednesday at Coulter-Garrison Funeral Home, Dayton, TN. We are hearing from friends that will be traveling in and we look forward to seeing them and sharing this time.

I ask for your continued prayers for myself and my family. There are some big decisions ahead and some possibilities that I am not looking forward too. But I also know that God sees the big picture...and knows the way ahead.....even when it isn't clear to me at all.

Thanks again for your love and support.....
Hugs,
Debbie

    Deb, this pic of John is very nice. Quite a handsome man. I know you were a beautiful couple. Just wanted to say hi and to remind you that God is in control, read psalms 91 , this is like my most favorite scripture. He is your refuge and your fortress, His truth shall be your shield !! Hang in there, Trusting And Believing God , love you
