    Mrs Arp was a wonderful Christian lady. I had the pleasure of having her for a Sunday School teacher many years ago. My mom & dad (Rev L.G. Parmer ) use to visit them quite often when I was little. I am so sorry for your loss, but Heaven just got a lil bit brighter with your mom there!

    I thank God that Aunt Joyce chose to raise me as one of her children. I think she did a wonderful job. Her life has always been a blessing and inspiration to me. She was always there for me and her sweet precious memory will be with me until the day I see her in Heaven. I will miss seeing and talking to her, but I know she is with our Lord and that is a comfort to me. Rest in peace my dear Aunt Joyce. Love, Jimmy
