    So sorry about the passing of your mother. I was at the Clinton House on Sunday and had prayer with her. I could not get any response from her. Had many times of good visits with her down through the years and she always appreciated the prayers. Will be praying for you all.

  10. Janice Goris

    I was so sad to see of Elizabeth’s passing. I do know she is now with her Lord and Savior and no longer suffering in this world. I see her running free – her legs letting her run! I have great memories of her from my teenage years and spending time at the Haynes house. I also have fond memories of her at my office. It was always a joy to talk with her. I know she will be greatly missed. Janice

  13. Charlyce

    Dear Family I wish to express my sympathy for the loss of Elizabeth. She enjoyed reading from the Bible during bible study time at Clinton House. She would be outside watering the flowers, picking off the dead flower buds and picking up dropped pieces of paper to make the entranceway look nice. she did great beadwork often bringing her completed crafts to show off to the Bible study group. We loved to hear her read with her slight southern accent. Elizabeth will truly be missed. May you draw comfort from God through prayer and family, friends, and neighbors during this difficult time. 2Corithians 1:3,4.
