Rest in peace sweet Ernestine. You will surely be missed.
Such a faithful member of FBC Savoy. She and Mr. Addington were always there until his health did not permit. She stayed with him as needed; but she came alone many times to Golden Treasures and other services. She loved her church family and hrt Lord deeply. She exuberated joy when attending with her family or when telling about family. She will definitely be missed.. Just want you to know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. May each of you feel the strength and comfort God is providing you.
PRAYING FOR MY EXTENDED FAMILY FOR COMFORT AN PEACE IN THIS TIME OF SORROW
Our hearts hurt for all the family. Thinking of you during this time of sorrow, but rejoice to know she is in the present of God. All our love to you.
