    Ms. Reba, you will be deeply missed but I know that heaven has welcomed you with open arms. You were steadfast in your love and devotion to Jesus Christ and I am eternally grateful to your passion in bringing the word of Christ to Hannah and Emma. You gave them a thirst for church and helped them form friendships that will hopefully last a lifetime. But YOU, you were also their friend and helped them navigate some difficult times in their young life and I so deeply appreciate that. You had a quiet way of understanding what they were going through but your strength was always there. I continue to thank God that He put you in our lives and I pray that He will give Caleb and Clayton the peace that only He can bring. I know you will watch over them, fully healed and full of joy.
