Donna FrezellSarah and Mark...your mom was such a gracious and kind-hearted soul. We often found ourselves in the same Precept bible study group over the years but years before that I have fond memories of caring for your family dog while she vacationed with you both. That seems like a lifetime ago and as we stand at this threshold now, indeed it was. How thankful I am to have crossed paths with your mom and been able to share in the same faith she held dear. She will be missed but remembered and one day we will meet her again. Praying for you both and your families as you grieve her loss. Donna Frezell
