Condolences

As a LifeCare Hospice Volunteer, I had the privilege of sitting with Mr. Warner from 9:00 PM til midnight last Friday. I held his hand, made light conversation, and kept a watchful eye over his breathing. May you be comforted in knowing your loved one is strong and healthy again, and HOME with His Savior. Respectfully, Rosemary Rosenberg

A rock of the Jefferson community for all these many years. Thinking of you all right now. Peace to you.
