    Cliff, Leona, Deb and families. I pray that the peace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ may fully be displayed to you at this time. I trust that the peace that we know and are assured of will uphold you during this time. We are assured that we will all be joined together, with Christ, in a new heaven and a new earth and it is His promise to us that can only give us TRUE PEACE. And to God be the glory, Amen

    Before I retired from the library in August of 2015, Dan was one of our regular patrons. He was kind and always had a smile on his face. He was a patron that we enjoyed seeing. He always took one or two books and always was responsible in returning them. Sometimes he would chat for a minute or two and then go on his merry way. The Lord decided it was Dan’s time to see the beauty, comfort and peace of heaven. Life has not ended…. it has changed. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers at this sad and difficult time. Thinking of you…. Clyde and Donna Maxwell
