Sarah Joy and Avery's Education

There truly are no words, but God's word gives us the strength to endure. He guides us today as we share this difficult and painful news with you. While we have such sorrow, we also have such a joy.

Our dear sweet Ali passed away from this world on November 21, 2017 after giving birth to her second precious daughter, Avery Lynn, who is healthy and progressing very well in the NICU for a few more days. Ali's husband Sam is incredibly strong and is surrounded by family and friends, as we all are. We are loving each other through this drawing on the strength only available from our miraculous God.

Memorial Service
Saturday, December 2, 2017
10:00 am

SA City Church
9431 Bandera Road
San Antonio, TX 78250

(A private graveside service will be held on Friday afternoon for Ali's family and closest friends.)

Ali gave her life to Christ at a very early age. She showed this in so many ways and most who knew her felt it strongly demonstrated by how she lived. On two occasions Ali traveled to Haiti on mission trips connecting with a great number of lives there as well. Even in her passing Ali continues to give in donating her physical self as a blessing to others.

Thank you for your continued prayer and support for Sam, Sarah Joy and Avery in the days, weeks, and months to follow.

On behalf of the entire family,

We pray you experience God's love and peace, even now.
