It saddened us to read about Fern's death. We used to visit with her when we saw her in her back yard when we were working in our back yard. We used to take her fresh green beans and tomatoes. She was such a sweet soul and we will miss her.

To the Family of Fern Plunk,I am so sorry for your loss. Please know that no matter how long we live it is never as long as our Creator intended. “Everything He has made pretty in its time. Even time indefinite He has put in their heart, that mankind may never find out the work that the [true] God has made from the start to the finish.”¬-Ecclesiastes 3:11.
May you find comfort in God's promise at John 5:28, 29.
