Please accept my sincere sympathy for your loss. I hope that you and your family will find comfort in the promises of God’s Kingdom when his will is done, and in the inspired words found at Psalm 34:18, “He is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit.”

I worked with Libby at Springs for 39 years and she was a very close friend. I loved her and will miss her greatly. Nancy Lewis
