Aunt Marcene was a great role model for life.

She will be missed; however, we are celebrating that she has re-joined Turner with the Lord.

PTL! Below is a good read.

Be encouraged, for the battle is already won. Jesus Christ has overcome death, and through Him, we who are called sons and daughters so too will overcome. Marcene Primrose has gone home to be with our Lord, free of the pains of life on Earth, in the eternal presence of her savior and Lord. Marcene's homegoing leaves us all in pain, missing her smile, calm personality, and gift of hospitality.

We who are left behind continue to struggle with the brokenness of this world and the imperfections that we encounter as we wa expectantly, serving our Lord until he returns, or our time comes to join Him. Thank the Lord that our place is secure. Now lets go grab some more souls to bring with us!Read more
