Guestbook

Janet and Family Dr. Ragan & I are praying for you and your family. We know that God's Grace is sufficient to sustain thee. In times like these HE is our anchor, as the Sweet Holy Spirit or our Lord. He knows our pain during these times and His compassion is like no one else's. Met Ms. Jean a while back. We hit it right off. She is one that I would have loved to spend the day with. Before we know it, we will be in eternity with her.
