“With tears we watched you leave this world and slowly fade away. Our hearts were sadly broken as you fought so hard to stay. We know your time to leave had come, but you did not go alone, for part of us went with you on the day God called your home. We celebrate your earthly life- its human form now ended; knowing you’re with Jesus helps our broken hearts be mended.”
Hunter Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.
