Messages & Condolences
John and I had the great privilege of getting to know Ilah through Bible study at Brandon Woods. She was having a little difficulty reading her Bible but her love of our Lord and Savior was evident through her love for others and the knowledge she shared.
After we moved, I would stop and see her when we infrequently got to Lawrence. She was always so delighted and delightful!
Our condolences to you. But what a joy to know she is now well and happy in the Arms of the Savior she loves.
God bless you.
