Lori, Candi and families...I am so sorry for your loss.  It's not easy losing a Mom!   Your Mom was a great friend, and we shared a lot of laughter and great times together over the years (even the same birthdays).   I will always remember her smile and laughter.  I pray that God will wrap His loving arms around all of you and give you comfort at this time.  Love, Carol Strauser

Lori, Candy and all family,

On behalf of the Christ's Chapel family, and my wife Marissa and I, I extend our sincere condolences in the passing of your dear mother, Marie.  Our prayers are with you today.  As we join you in trusting for the blessed hand of our Lord to be with you in this time, we look to His promises for our comfort.  There we find over and over again, He will be with us always.  It is He who hears your every cry. It is He who knows your every care.  We join with you in praise before Him today for the beautiful testimony of faith which your mother gave throughout all her days.  She was the example that each of us are able to now reflect upon.  In that, we say 'thank you Jesus for your child, that we were blessed to know'.  God be with you in this day and all your days to come.  Pastor Simeon Strauser
