    Mrs. B has been an inspiration to all who knew her. Pastor Mike , Pastor Cheryl, Les and I had the honour of sharing communion with her 3 days before she passed to glory. We all sang hymns and she shone with joy even raising her hand in worship. What a testimony to Faith.A life well lived…what an amazing reward she must have enjoyed.

    So sorry to hear your sad news. Yes a truly loved person by all her family.
    I remember her from my childhood days in England being both a neighbour and friend of Judy. She raised a very good and strong family so that in itself is an achievment to be proud of. I’m sure the families faith will keep them strong and have lots of great memories to share. Thinking of you all at this time. Maggie from England

    She ran the race and stayed the course. An example of the life of a faith filled lady who loved the Lord. I know that you will miss her, and I don’t say this lightly but I am glad that she has received her crown; has met the Lord, and is safe in His arms. God bless.
