Janet and family,
We want to express our sincere condolences to all of you and let you know that we are sorry that we will not be in the Marion area for awhile.  We are on our way to visit our son and his family in WA, so we will not be able to attend the calling hours.  We know that Dana loves the Lord and that he is now rejoicing with Jesus and is pain free.  What a comforting thought!  May you feel the blanket of prayers being lifted by the LaRue UMC prayer warriors for your family and friends as you go through these difficult days.
Blessings and prayers,
Bill and Betty Jo McElroy

Dear Janet - I am so sorry to read of Dana's death. I know the last time we talked, you said he was very sick. I, also just learned today, when trying to find your address that Loretta had died in March. There are now just 6 of us Adams cousins left. Whenever you can contact me. Love and Prayers, your cousin, Marcella (Adams) Jamison
