For those of you who are not aware, it is with great sadness that I must report to you that Sister Betty Stephens was called home to be with her Savior on Thursday,June 21st, 2018. The sadness is not for her but for the family and myself. She is going to be missed by so many of us and personally, I have not only had to say goodbye to my sister in the Lord I have had to say goodbye to a wonderful friend.
Our deepest condolences to Sis. Carolyn and the family and I am going to ask everyone in our congregation to please pray that the peace of God will settle on every family member.
Sis. Betty’s funeral will be held Thursday, June 28th, 2018 in the chapel of Jax Memory Gardens, 111 Blanding Boulevard, Orange Park, Florida 32073. Viewing will be from 10:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. and the funeral will begin at 11:00 a.m. Interment will be at Jax Memory Gardens.
After the service the family will be coming to the South Middleburg Baptist Church where we will serve them a luncheon and give them time to fellowship and reminisce. We will be contacting many of you and asking once again that you help with food during this time. You always come through and are such an inspiration to grieving families because you are not only serving them nourishment for their bodies, you are serving them the nourishment of love for their hearts. THANK YOU!!!
God bless every one of you.
