    When your heart is heavy laden
    and you’re grieving shedding tears just know God’s love is faithful and let Him calm your greatest fears and lost assuring that you will see your loved one some sweet day.
    I met Mrs Lewis when I attended Adventure and Faith Sunday School class @ FUMC , she was such a great loving passionate, quiet and kind person, I’ve enjoyed listening to her soft voice as she would pitch in when Max teaches Sunday school and Bible study classes to help him in sharing with the class prior history about their lives and home town etc. Mrs Lewis was truly an angel that God had place amongst us, and with outstretched arms He receives her back as His own . I’m sure that everyone who has come into contact with her will miss her dearly , I will miss her warm and loving hugs and her delicious desert that she would brings to our class dinners. May her soul rest in Eternal peace.
