Murieta Rogers was a Dear FRIEND FOR MANY MANY YEARS WE WILL MISS HER WE WILL SEE HER AGAIN IN HEAVEN PRAYING FOR HER FAMILY GLENDA HARRELL
Prayers for all of the family. I remember her fondly. As well as the family members. God speed Rita, I know you will be looking down on all of your family.
So sorry Dona. Loved your mom. I now live on Holiday Island, outside of Eureka Springs, and will be unable to attend.
Praying for your family that God will give peace and comfort at this time and in the days ahead.It is comforting to know that Mrs. Rogers was strong in her faith and she is walking with her Lord and Savior in Heaven. She's no longer in pain.
Nan was one of the strongest Christians I know. Her faith was kept until the end. And now she doesn’t need it. She has sight!
Dona and family: We are so sorry. Prayers for you and all of your precious family during this time. Even though we won’t be able to attend, we are praying for you and sending our love.
