    My children and family members were students at Ridgecrest, Mrs. White always had a smile on her face and she touched many , many lives. She will be missed greatly. She left a great legacy and her family should be very proud of her accomplishments.

    My deepest sympathy to Mrs. Ruth Bell. Wes Steve and Marti’s husband and children.
    We have certainly lost too many of our extended church family from Maplewood Church of Christ. It saddens me every time I hear of another passing. Marti is with the Lord now and we will all join here one day.

She is in the arms of Jesus and who knows she and Roy are probably smiling down on us and having a good chat – laughing alot I’m sure. Love you all! Call if you ever just need a friend to talk to.
