My prayers are with you. What a blessing to know that she loved the Lord and even though we grieve we don" as those with no hope. Resurrection Sunday reminds us of this! I best remember her sitting at the table in the dining hall at the campground at SCAMP camp taking nourishment. Thank God for memories.

Dear Aurich Family, It has been quite a while since we have had a Pickerd Reunion to see you. My heart goes out to each of you. It is hard loosing our mother, it is comforting to know she is in God's arms. Praying for you at this difficult time for you.
