I'm so sorry for the loss of your Mother, I didn't know until just now. We graduated from Abbeville High together. She was a very good friend.

Pastor Boyd Arnold and family. The loss of a wife and mother are so hard to explain, but the grace of God extends even to the depths of the heart to bring comfort and strength. Remy and I always enjoyed visiting Friendship Church and the warm welcome Mrs. Arnold and the rest of the congregation gave us. Our prayers are with you during this time, but we also rejoice with you in the knowledge that she is now in the visible presence of the One with whom she, by faith, has been in His presence.
