Amy Mock lost her beloved brother Jeff Mock yesterday. Jeff and Amy were very close. Please continue to pray for Amy and the family. Amy would like to grant her brother’s request of a Christian burial but has realized the cost is more than she and her family can provide on their own. She created a GoFundMe yesterday which was sent out to the church but with the fees taken by GoFundMe, Venmo will net her more. Cards of sympathy and love may be sent to Amy at 291 Springdale Drive, Winder, GA 30680.
Dear Athens Church of Christ: Friends of Linda and Larry,
Thank you for the cards for my husband Frank. They were very touching.
Connie Oddo and Family
Linda Minter would like to thank the church for your prayers and support throughout her father’s health crisis and his passing. She is very grateful.
Please continue to pray for Linda and the family. Cards of sympathy and love may be sent to Linda and family at 1471 Mayne Mill, Road, Watkinsville, GA 30677.
