Alma Hertzler’s Funeral

For the Hertzlers who could not make it to Alma’s funeral on June 21 in Fair Play, South Carolina, I took a few pictures.

She may have lost the fight with cancer, but she did not lose the battle.

Alma… back in the day!

 I took a few pictures of Uncle Harry’s tribe.

The church was packed to overflowing and the accapella singing was heavenly. I recorded one song, “Shall We Gather At the River”.

It was so obvious that this sweet, gentle lady was so  loved by many and will be greatly missed. But because of the awesome, incredible love of Jesus Christ, we will be together again!

    Thanks so much for sharing this . As part of JP and Alma’s adopted family we really hated not being there. We taught school in their area when JP was on the school board and Russell and Lucinda were in school. Then our son Ryan was born and JP’s were our local grandparents.
