Condolences left for Margy L. Meyer:

    Sis. Margy was a wonderful member of our congregation. She will be missed. It was a honor to be her Pastor. She has heard, well done thou good and faithful servant! A crown of life has been placed on her head and angels ushered her through the pearly gates. Without an ache or a pain, she is walking on streets of gold, reunited with Peck.
