Ms. Cora was such a beautiful lady, inside and out. In my years of ministering at Greene Point, she always had a smile to share, a testimony of her love for her Lord and Savior and a request for the song, "When The Roll Is Called Up Yonder." Her Savior has called her name and I know she answered with a smile and a praise. June, Jimmy, Chris and family---she will be sorely missed, but may you take comfort in the arms of the Savior she loved so dear during your time of sorrow, because truly---"Earth's Loss is Heaven's Gain."
Sympathy, Love and Prayers,
Rev. Brenda and Pat Vandiver
