Easter lilies utilized to honor family, friends at Somerville BC

Published 3:02pm Tuesday, April 9, 2013

We all love to receive gifts and even enjoy giving gifts, but one of life’s greatest gifts is friendship.

To be a friend, we must show ourselves friendly. Always know that we never have to go through life alone. We must reach out and be a friend.

Most of our friends are only a phone call away. A true friend speaks the truth no matter how hard it hurts to hear.

Choose friends who speak truthfully even though their honesty is painful. Someone that tells you what you want to hear is not a true friend.

On Resurrection Sunday, the sanctuary of Somerville Baptist Church was decorated with Easter lilies in memory and in honor of family and friends as follows: in memory of Baughn and Ann Weidel by Vic and Vona Keeling, in memory of Mildred Johnson and Thomas Johnson by Peggy Shadden, in memory of Pop Keeling by Betty, Vic and Vona Keeling, in memory of J.W. Russell by Todd and Jenny Russell, in memory of Lucy Davis by Berta Wilson, in memory of Myrtle Coffey by Larry and Sharon Culp, in memory of the Rev. David Lewis, in memory of Carla Ann Allred by Barbara Allred, in memory of Joe Morrow by Nancy Morrow, in memory of Tom and Rita Posey by David and Beth Lewis, in memory of Edith Belcher by Joyce Wright and in memory of Patricia and Dennis by Garry Grove; in honor of Penny Hazel by Nancy Morrow, in honor of Ella Kate Allred by Barbara Allred, in honor of Don and Linda Edwards and Jeannette Russell, in honor of The Rev.
