Our prayers and sincere sympathy to Deacon Moody, Elaine and family. What a blessing to have known and been touched by such a sweet, kind hearted and giving person such as your wife and mother. Jackie and I have known her since little girls at Mt. Pisgah. She was such a loving and caring person then and continued to be when we reconnected with her at Greater Gethsemane. She was a jewel!
