On behalf of our family, we all want to express our thanks to you for all that you have done for us in the loss of our Mother, Ann Spivey.
Your prayers, the cards, the flowers and plants, your visits, and the many personal expressions of sympathy you have expressed to us have meant so much to all of us. Thank you so much for the care you have expressed to all of us.
Family was the plan of God from the beginning. Family is the foundation of all human society. Making family strong and secure is the only way to make neighborhood, county, state and country strong and secure.
We celebrate the strength of our family which was built upon the strength and love of our parents. It starts with Mom and Dad sharing the love, devotion and commitment that God intended to build a strong and loving family.
When marriages are strong and faithful to God’s intent, then families have the foundation to be strong. Strong families make for strong communities and strong communities make for a strong nation.
All of it picturing for us the ultimate family, the family of God. The family devoted to each other because of our devotion to our Father who is in heaven.
I thank God for you, my family, with whom I long to live with in the presence of God forever.
