Theresa Ann Carnes

I was sorry to hear of Theresa's passing, but glad she is with her Lord Jesus Christ. I have a lot of fond memories of her when we were at CE. She called me up to tell me about OVI and how proud she was of her granddaughter's vision of a hospital in Africa. She loved her family very mich and we will pray for all of you.
