Sister Morris touched our lives in many ways as teenagers when they pastored in Zanesville, and beyond. She taught us to love God, work hard, and be kind to others, through her counsel and her example. She truly made a difference in our lives.

I only knew Darlh a short time; but, the time was special. I was her American Cancer Society driver. We had quite a few "memorable talks" on our way to and from the Laube Cancer Center. I got to know her and her family and she got to know mine. She was a special lady who I will always remember. You have my heart felt sympathies. I was blessed to have known her.

To Gene, David, Daniel, their children, Bill and Betty and their children. Want to share with you the words from Fanny Crosby that have been on my mind since I received the news. : " O the friends that now are waiting , In the cloudless realms of day.
Who are calling me to follow where their steps have led the way. They have laid aside their armor, and their earthly course is run.
They have kept the faith with patience and their crown of life is won. They have laid aside their armor for the robe of spotless white. And with Jesus they are walking where the river sparkles bright. We have labored here together, we have labored side by side, Just a little while before me they have crossed the rolling tide. " Change the wording from they to her, and you will know how I feel. Blessings on all of you today and this week, and in the days ahead. Wish I could be with you. With my prayers, Gert
