Psalm 23:4 states that, "Even though we walk through the valley of the shadow of death, we will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me." Wherever we go, from our birth throughout our life and into the passage of death, the Lord is always and ever with us. When the time comes to bid this life farewell, we should find comfort in knowing that a loving God will be there with us to guide us to our new home.  It is with a broken heart,but a feeling of Thanksgiving for the 80 years that Mother Leevinne Taylor lived with us.
