Thank you Mrs. Gomez for all the
many years of love and dedication to our Preacher and our church you so
lovingly supplied. We are grateful for
your dedication to your family. We are
grateful for your loyalty and faithfulness to your family, friends, and your
church family. We are more mindful of
our salvation today and grateful to have had you for our Pastor’s wife all
these years. We never thought that it
would be your appointed time, but we have had double blessings for having known
you and having seen you give of yourself to our Preacher, your family, and to
the ministry. Preacher and Mrs. Gomez…
true love in perfect harmony with a perfect God.
