Iíll always remember Leilaís smile and kindness. They encouraged me as a young pastor. But I will especially carry with me the time when some of Billís friends including me broke a dining room chair while we played games at a teenage party. I think she was so happy to see us having fun at her home that the loss of the chair was a fair price to pay. May the Lord grant you as a family rich memories and continued faith. Blessings!
