    May this entire dear family find additional comfort in knowing we share deeply in your loss. Mrs. Hendricks was a third generation church school teach for my family. She loved the children and loved teaching. She knew the most important gift she could give the children was the Word of God. Thank you family for sharing her with our family.❤
