    What a special Lady, She was a true Proverbs lady, Mother, and Special Friend. We know you will all miss her, as we will also. She has graduated and received her diploma into heaven. She is seeing Jesus and we can't even imagine what a celebration is going on right now. I can just imagine Firman saying to her; I have been waiting on you. Where have you been, what took you so long? We will miss our Sister and her special laugh. She was such a blessing to each and everyone that knew her. We are blessed that we had the opportunity to know and love her, and to learn from her as our former Pastor's Wife and Friend

    To the Mitchum Family,

    I was so saddened to hear of Sister Mitchum's passing. We all know that she is back with Ferman again and they will never be apart again. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. May God be with all of you at this time.

    Love you all,
