    Mrs. Covington was one of my first memories.. Gary and Jane would take me to her house and we would watch Mr. Covington in the garden at first. Then Mrs. Covington and I were in the middle of the garden running the rolls. What great memories of this beautiful family. Please know your family are in our thoughts and prayers. May God give you peace and comfort .

    Please accept my sincere condolences during this time of grief. My hope is that the words of Christ Jesus be of comfort, when he stated that “the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out” (John 5: 28, 29). We can also take comfort in God’s personal promise to “wipe out every tear” and that soon, even “death will be no more” (Revelation 21: 4).
