Our thoughts & prayers go out to the Howard families, we loved Elton & Doris, they were the most compassionate Pastor's, we enjoyed our visits with the both of them, they never judged or condemned anyone, they lived their lives Christ like & wanted to be sure everyone was loved by them & bound for heaven to be with Jesus. We will miss Doris as much as we have missed Elton!
