Planted in the area of greatest need

Ray and Edna Lapp

We moved to Fairmount this past June and soon learned to know your mother. We experienced her as a caring, cheerful person and it was always a pleasure to cross paths with her. We extend our sympathy as you grieve her passing. We are sure you have many good memories to reflect on and will bring you good cheer. Our parents have been gone for thirty some years now and there are numerous times when we are together as siblings that we reflect on the years we had them with us. May God's grace and peace be with you.
