My thoughts & prayers are with you all at this time. Irma Jean was a dear sweet lady & a sister in Christ. I know she is resting now in the arms of Jesus & that she shared her faith & love for the Lord with all of her family as well as everyone she came in contact with. I will forever cherish the memory I have of her & the trip we took together with Kim & Steve to Alabama a couple of years ago. What a special treat that was for me! May God grant you all a special touch of love, comfort and peace at this time as only He can.
