To my Oklahoma family, I wish I could be there for this remembrance of Aunt Carolyn. Unfortunately, I cannot. But I would like to extend our sincere condolences and prayers that the Holy Spirit will grant you peace and comfort in this time of mourning and loss. I will always remember Aunt Carolyn based on our fond memories of travelling to Tahlequah, Locust Grove, and Peggs as we were growing up. And also the Duvall's trips to Arizona to visit. Her passing leaves a space in my heart, as we bid that generation of the Rills and former Rills farewell until we join them again in a great family reunion in God's Heavenly Kingdom. God Bless You All ("“Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in... God; believe also in me. In my Father's house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you?And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also." - John 14:1-3Read more
