May the promise found at Isaiah 25:8 bring some comfort in the death of Etha Sophronia Crawford. "He will swallow up death forever. The Sovereign Lord will wipe away the tears from all faces." Just imagine, no more pain and grief due to the death of a love one! By means of the Kingdom that Jesus Christ taught us to pray for, God is going to remove sickness, old age and death from the human family.

We remember Etha when we had the grocery store in Hastings in the early 1950's. She was a very valued customer. Don and Wanda Loseke
