Heaven has received the other half of two of the best Christians earth had to offer. The love and kindness shown in their home and to everyone they met spread far and wide through many years and touched the lives of so many people. God ruled their home first and foremost and His Spirit could be felt even before entrance into their door that was always open. Many years ago, I had the opportunity to be a part of their family and found them to be as Mama and Daddy and that never changed in my heart. As I visited them through the years as a former daughter- in- law, I found them to be unchangeable in their love and kindness towards me or my family. For all I learned about what real love is from these two Christian people I cherish and will never forget. I can only hope in my life I can show just a reflection of what being a Christian lady really is from what I learned from her as Mama. May the family know that my family shares in their sorrow and pray for strength for them as they face the days ahead. Judy Fergerson, Louisburg, NC (the other Judy)
