Nora, Annette, Ralph James,
Your Mom was a positive part of the Stratford community and the Baptist church for my entire memory! Plus your dear Dad, Ralph too. He left this world the same year as my dad. So very sad to know your sadness at losing Minnie here. Yet I hope and pray that you are comforted and at peace with the absolute truth that she lived and loved well, and is tending garden and laughing in joy at Jesus’s side in full renewal, as she continues to watch over you and all your clan. She was such an example of sweetness , commitment, acceptance and faith. Hugs to you all, and prayers for your peace and comfort.
