Condolences

As Harlene's neice  and a cousin of Melanie, I want to publicly thank Melanie and her immediate family for their loving care and devotion to our Aunt Harlene.  Accepting Jesus as her Saviour, enabled Harlene to now reside in heaven. She often told me how she loved her church and the blessing you have been to her.  Thank you Gap Community.  Melanie and others who helped you (especially the nursing skills of another neice Beverly) I hope you can rest and be at peace...well done my child.

God Bless You All                                                                                                                                                                                             Carolyn Proffit
