    Bill & I have known the Davies family for many years. G. L. and Bill served in the Gideons together and loved each other dearly. We have a worship service at The Oaks at Limestone every Sunday. Dianne was one of our most faithful to attend. If you mentioned her Dad or Mom, she was all smiles. We loved her very much for many years. We will miss her and were so sad when we went to give her a Christmas card Thursday and she had gone to be with her loved ones in heaven – sad for us but glad for her. She spends Christmas with Jesus from now on.
    Love and condolences to you all.
