  1. Shelia and Dennis,
    Someone told me of your mother’s passing and I was saddened to hear it. God gave her to ya’ll for a long and good life. I hope that as I extend my prayer and the prayers of the Lord’s church I pastor, First Baptist Church in Carencro, LA., that it will be of some small comfort to you. She worked hard and did right by ya’ll, Thank God for that. Rev. Nick Peters, Pastor of First Baptist Church of Carencro, LA.
