Marcia and Janet, I was so sorry to read of your mother's passing. You may not remember me...Peggy Keys. I fondly remember your mom's generous embrace of our young family when we first moved to Akron and attended Ephrata Nazarene Church. Her wonderful meals fed us more than once. I remember you, Marcia as a young member of the youth group. Janet, I think you and Kenny were just a little too young for that group. I trust that the wonderful memories of your Mom and Dad will make this experience easier. May your families feel the love that is sent your way.

I have so many great memories of Edna through my childhood years. She loved the Lord and now is with Him, singing in heaven's choir. Praying for comfort to the family with His blessed assurance. Love to you. Glee Carvell
