To the Shininger Family:

May you feel her Angel Wings brush upon you with a whisper of the love that binds you together in harmony.

Todd and the rest of the family…was saddened to hear of Perma’s passings. She was a very special lady who will be missed so very much. I have known her for a very long time, we worked the food bank together and other church doings. She loved her husband and family very much and was so proud of them. I know that Jesus was holding out HIS ARMS and saying, “Come my faithful servant I welcome you home.” Keeping all of you in our prayers.-
