Here we are back to changing our time again. I guess everything has changed so much just as well mess with the time.
Sister Willene Adams funeral was at Clinkingbeard Funeral Home Thursday. February 24th at church a week before James preached he said I don’t usually do this but it was about a memory of Willene and what a Christian and inspiration she was to him. And as he said at the funeral she was a good example for people. He preached about blessings and she was one to him. And he got to tell her that before God called her home. This Sunday he made mention in his sermon about how happy she is and peaceful she looked so peaceful with a smile on her face.
