    My sympathy to Barbara and the family, as we were co-worker/friends at the State Bank of New Athens in the late 1960 -early 1970’s. What a great team we had. And special memories of going to Peacock Site on Fri. after work to eat Mary’s good food with her and Toddy. Rest in peace Betty. Dorothy

Seeing the promises in God’s word the bible will help you to gain strength and fortify your hearts, granting you comfort. (2 Thessalonians 2:16,17; jw.org)
