A Life Well-Lived
“He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be morning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away (Revelation 21:4). Our sister, friend, aunt, and cousin, Carmenia Jones Anderson, born May 18,1930 has gain eternal life.
