There are no words to describe the gratitude and sense of support, comfort, and love we felt as
we struggled with the illness and death of our beloved Pearl. From our own community of Denton to others throughout our state
and beyond, we received cards, letters, flowers, prayers, food precious visits-all with one purpose-to ease our burden by
showering us with your love. That Christian love enveloped us with comfort and assurance that in every trial we face, there
are blessings to follow.
Special thanks to Hospice of Davidson County
and Briggs Funeral Home for all their help and dedication.
May the Lord
richly bless each of you for each kind word and deed and for each kind thought and prayer on our behalf, whether expressed
Bless you! Bless you! Bless you!

“Her children arise up, and call her blessed…”
On March 17, a fire erupted in a storage building
trapping my husband as the flames immediately surrounded him. We want to recognize and express our sincere thanks to God’s
teams of Angels who provided for our every need.
First, God himself miraculously
wrapped his shield of protection around Jerry and somehow “lifted him” through the flames as I watched helplessly.
Soon, (although it seemed like an eternity) four fantastic volunteer Fire Departments arrived:
Healing Springs, South Davidson, Badin Lake, and New Hope. They were immediately in action…putting out the fire and
removing fuel that could have created a much worse situation. There was no hesitation in providing all the actions and expertise
to get the situation under control. Also, they immediately recognized that Jerry needed medical attention due to smoke inhalation.
As a result of the care they provided by the firemen/women, followed by EMS, and subsequently by the staff at Thomasville
ER and Baptist ICU, he is back home recovering.
Thank you, young men and
women who give of your time, energy, training and love and concern for community to serve your volunteer fire departments
and for medical care teams who provide for those in need in emergencies. Our first responders can’t be thanked enough!
If you question miracles, be reassured; they do happen! Jerry has not one burn on his body
or his clothes. God totally protected him and brought him through the hot flames!! It was not his time.
We praise God for his unfailing, unequaled, underserved love, mercy and grace.
God bless you all!
Jerry and Judy Koontz
