Our deepest sympathies to everyone in the family – especially Kathy, Steve, Cori, Ryan and Angela. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Sister June is now at peace in the hands of our Lord. Although we stopped attending Crossroads, our hearts were never far from the people we knew there, especially Sister June. She was an inspiration to everyone who knew her, especially us.
