    I am so sorry for your loss as a family. I know Lydia did a great job in training the children , as you all love the Lord and that must have been a great joy to her ! Her work will be carried on by those she trained and their children for generations. She put her children in a position to be a success in life , which tells me she was a good mother and example . I know you as a family will continue her ministry to encourage others in their life walk. Praying for you as a family in this time of reflection/loss of a true friend, Bob Landis
