My condolences to the family of Elizabeth Colleton. I pray God continues to comfort and strengthen the family during this time of bereavement. May the many cherished and loving memories of Elizabeth continue to comfort her family and friends. A comforting thought is at Psalm 46:1 ""God is our refuge and strength, a help that is readily found in times of distress."" May you all have calming and pleasant thoughts during this time.

I will always remember Mrs Colleton as a faithful member of the Palmetto Conference WMS and Lay Organization.
