In Our Prayers

Melodye Phillips is at Mother Frances Hospital in Room 207. She was to undergo a C-Section today, but her blood sugar was low and she was taken to the hospital early. Andy and Melodye are asking for prayers.

We extend our deepest sympathies to Jeannie Looney, whose brother-in-law, John Atkins, died Friday, March 15 in Genoa, Nevada. The family will have a memorial service later in the spring.

Please also keep Henry Lewis, father of Martha Jane Wallace, in your prayers. He has been seriously ill for several weeks.

We extend our deepest sympathies to the family of long-time member Yvonne Collett, who died last Wednesday. A private family memorial service was held on Saturday at Cedars Memorial Garden Cemetery.

Our sincere condolences also go out to the family of Herbert Riley, who died Friday morning. Herbert was the father of Gay Pfund. His funeral service was held on Sunday in Frankston.
