Grandma was the sunshine in my life, and it was an honor to be part of her life. She raised a wonderful family, cared for (babysat) most all of the grand-kids and great grandkids. She was a faithful servant to God, church, many friends...she was the glue that kept all of us together. I will miss her in every way but know the security that she is in heaven. One of her favorite verses in the Bible is Psalms 91-1: Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. You will be truly missed by many, and your legend will carry on.

I will miss this wonderful lady. She kept my mother in prayer during her declining health, and also prayed for me during my difficult times. Rest in Peace. I will miss you, you are gone but never forgotten, and "Thank You".

Dear Condron family. I am so sorry to have read of the death of Coladean. Please accept my sincere condolences. I would like to share something that I have personally found to be comforting. It is found in the Bible at John 5:28, 29 and Revelation 21:4. May God give you and your family comfort in His promise that soon we will never experience losing our loved ones in death and we will be able to see them again once they are resurrected. With deepest sympathy and warmth of heart.

I loved Corky. We prayed for her family so many times over the years. She prayed for my family, too. Awesome prayer warrior! She finished her race and is with Jesus, whom she loved with all her heart.

Lead Me Gently Home

Words and Music by Will L. Thompson, 1879
(07 Nov 1847 - 20 Sept 1909)

Lead me gently home, Father,
Lead me gently home;
When life’s toils are ended,
And parting days have come,
Sin no more shall tempt me,
Ne’er from Thee I’ll roam,
If Thou’ll only lead me, Father,
Lead me gently home.

* Refrain:
Lead me gently home, Father,
Lead me gently home, Father,
Lest I fall upon the wayside,
Lead me gently home.

Lead me gently home, Father,
Lead me gently home;
In life’s darkest hours, Father,
When life’s troubles come,
Keep my feet from wand’ring,
Lest from Thee I roam,
Lest I fall upon the wayside,
Lead me gently home.
