A moment of prayer....."Peace I leave you; My peace I give you....Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid." John 14:27 May God's hope-filled promises bring you comfort and peace to your heart.

The Davis family is special in my memories of growing up. Attending church on Buck Mountain and spending time with all the sweet families up there. The Davis family certainly holds a special place in my heart. Hugs and prayers to Jimmy, Betty Jo, and Lynn.
