We extend our Condolences and deepest Sympathy to the Emerson family, the Corish family, the Jackson family, the extended family and church family of sister Ruth Nell Emerson, and all who loved her and will miss her dearly. God The Father decided to let the sickness have sister Ruth's decaying body and changed her address from 'The Gardens at West Shore Camp Hill Pennsylvania' to one of the Mansions that Jesus prepared for her. We will grieve but by The Grace of God we will get through it but not over it. Elder & Mrs. C. G. Henderson.
