Grandma Cheatham

Jonathan's Grandma Cheatham passed away in the early hours of this past Sunday morning around 5:30 a.m. She lived a very full life, one of ministry with her husband. She has now joined him in Heaven and they are together again and both free of pain. Grandma had been very sick and although her death was not unexpected it is never easy to let a loved one go. It is peaceful to know that she is no longer suffering. Please remember the family in your prayers. The viewing is Wednesday evening and the funeral is Thursday morning.

The Cheatham's were next door neighbors to the Walden's for a while. We have always loved and appreciated them. Sis. Cheatham was a sweet lady. We regret we will not be able to attend the viewing as Parker has pre-school orientation Wednesday evening. We will be remembering the family in prayer.

Jonathan, Karen and kids!
