One says the brain is always fresher in the morning,and so this morning upon waking ,I remembered that I had not sent our love and sympathy to Virgil and his family. I''m sure you were glad that the earthly suffering and trails are over, but the parting is difficult. God blessed your mother this many talents,and I sometimes wonder what our Mother''s would have done with their talents in this day and age. Your''s probably something artsy.But one thing they did so well was to be a Godly Women as talked about in Proverbs 39. I always draw comfort, strength and am so thankful for the Godly women of my childhood-your mother being one of them. We were a small church and community,but what wonderful examples we all grew up with. They left us with a challenging legacy by their actions,words,and firm belief in God. May you all find comfort in the assurances of God''''''''''''''''s word--"Well done thy good and faithful servant,enter into the joys of my kingdom". Our Love, Byron and Katie Martin
