Special Choir Update

It is with much sadness today that I write this special choir update.  This week, one of our Bella Voce students, Rachel Scarberry, went to the be with the Lord via a tragic car accident.  Rachel was in choir, band, 4H and several sports and known by all as a girl with a cheery disposition.  She will be very much missed, but I know Jesus is loving her even now as she is probably singing in the heavenly choirs.

For those interested, the following information has been released concerning her funeral arrangements.

Please join us to honor Rachel’s life at a Memorial Service on Wednesday, April 9 at 10:00 am, Heritage Baptist Church, 14316 N Council Rd. Flowers can be sent to Vondel Smith and Son Mortuary at 13125 N MacArthur. The family does not have a formal memorial set up but if anyone wanted to make a charitable donation in Rachel's name (rather than send flowers), Rachel always supported Pets and People in Yukon. This is the Pets and People website:  http://www.petsandpeople.com/index.html

Flowers will be sent on the choir's behalf.  However, if you would like to make a more personal donation you are more than welcome.  

This coming Tuesday morning, Bella Voce will also have a brief time of remembrance for her at the beginning of rehearsal and a licensed counselor (Mrs. Andrea Caplinger) will be available should any wish to speak with someone during this time of grief.  If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me, Kathy Gossen, at 405-833-6427.
