We love all of you.....may you receive God's comfort..hear my cry oh God, listen to my prayer; from the end of the earth I call to you when my heart is faint. Lead me to the rock that is higher than I-Psalms 61:1-2 Rudy, Ericka, and Randi Pachuca, October 14, 2012 What can we say about a woman who made everyone feel comfortable immediately and loved children and God with all of her heart? Dana, I cannot believe you are really gone. It breaks my heart that I will not hear that laugh in the halls of GAUMC anymore, or hear you talk so lovingly about your family. You were one of a kind, and I am so blessed to have known you. Rest, sweet Dana. We will see each other again. Love you so much.
