Condolence & Memory Journal

I always enjoyed Akai at First Church of Christ in Ankeny. She was a beautiful lady with a gentle spirit about her. I truly missed when she was unable to attend any longer. She ALWAYS had a smile on her face and that sparkle in her eye that was SO contagious! You could see the love of God flow from her face. She was always very patient when I struggled understanding her and would make sure I knew what word she was trying to pronounce before moving on in our conversation. Loved this lady and God has definitely gained a beautiful angel.
