Over 40 years in Holyoke sharing her life with the people. My deepest condolences to her loved ones and never loose hope in what is promised in the bible. Dan. 12:2 "Many of those asleep in the dust of the earth will wake up" and John 5:28,29 "the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out..."
