To Deacon Manley and the entire family.
I am so sorry to hear about Sis. Manley passing. I remember her as being one who liked to laugh and who loved her family and any children that came her way.
Stay close as a family and even closer to God. He is the one who will help you through this. Just remember going THROUGH is the key word. It will get easier in time and I know you dont think so right now but I know from experience God can get you through. Keep in your memory the great times with her and know she's resting in the arms of Jesus.
Love you
