My mother, Helen Durand, went home to be with the Lord on Sunday morning. She spent 80 years upon this earth and most of 70 of it as an unashamed child of the King. Without a doubt, her testimony will bear fruit for generations to come. I'll be preaching her service on Tuesday night. Mama was quite direct about her expectations of what the service should be.... a celebration of God's grace toward her and His love extended at Calvary through Jesus Christ. Your prayers for my father, especially, and my siblings are cherished.
