    Fred, I was so saddened to learn of Beryl's Homegoing, but I am so thankful that her earthly pain and suffering have ended and that she is now at Home in the presence of our Lord - the one she loved and served so faithfully. I will forever remember all of our years of working together in Children's Sunday School at First Baptist Church. She was a joy and blessing to the children - she loved them dearly and they knew it. She was my right arm all those years and I will never forget all of her love, support and encouragement to me. She is now rejoicing with the Lord and what a blessed promise we have that one day soon we will all be together in the Lord's presence for all eternity, never to be separated again. Please know you will be in my prayers and thoughts in these days, weeks and months that lie ahead. May the Lord bless, comfort and strengthen you in a powerful way and I know His grace will be sufficient for you! With my thoughts, prayers and deepest sympathy to you as I remember my precious friend, Beryl. Alton
