I was so saddened to hear about the passing of Mrs. Kimbro! She was my favorite teacher. I had her in the second grade. I still have the ceramic Christmas Tree ornament that she had painted for her students one year. Such a beautiful soul! God Bless you all in this difficult time! Tonya (St. John) Grimm

Expressing my condolence to the family for the lost of your precious loved one. Please find hope and comfort in God’s wonderful promise of a resurrection of those who have passed away to be fulfilled by his son Jesus Christ. Then God’s promise of no more sickness, sorrow, pain or death will come to be. What a wonderful time to look forward to! May you have peace in your hearts as we all await this time together. Acts 24:15; John 5:28,29; Revelation 21:3-5.
