My heart is full of gratitude and love for Mr. Sanders and Ruth. I was also blessed to be in their house regularly for our cell group prayers and at other times. We are so lucky to have known them closely. I pray that Ruth and her family find solace in Him to move on. Praying for strength, courage and perseverance. Mr. Sanders will be with his grand daughter Keri and others and enjoying every moment with the Lord, where there is no pain and despair. Love to you all. The Andrews family
