Dear Church Family, Thank you so much for all you did for us for Nelson’s memorial service. Pastor Mike and Bro. Eric Ramsey each did such a good job, and I appreciated the way Bro. Mike gave the plan of salvation. Bro. Steve and the other musicians did a wonderful job with the music, and the whole service was so encouraging and up-lifting. Thanks to everyone who had a part in the service. The delicious meal provided by the church was enjoyed and appreciated by the whole family.
