Condolences

I was Rita and Tom’s preacher at Parkview. I am in Columbus until Friday night. Is there going to be a service or family visitation. I would like to visit or attended. 859.490.0801

Grandma Rita was my quilting and Bible study buddy. She always had kind and encouraging words. She and Tom were true examples of Christian service. I will miss her, but she is in the arms of our Savior.

Loved Rita and Tom at Parkview. Our condolences to the family. Terry and Deb
