We are so very sorry for your loss. Please find comfort in God's sure promise of a resurrection as set forth in the Bible (Acts 24:15, John 5:28, 29). Those who are raised to life on a restored paradise earth will have the prospect of never again being subjected to misery, sickness, and death (Revelation 21:4). These and other comforting Bible verses and thoughts can be found at

We'd like to extend our sympathy to Great-Aunt Mary's family. My husband Jack is her godson and is the son of her niece, Karen Orvis. I don't recall ever having a piece of Mary's Angel Food Cake but now I sure wish I had. May she and Langdon enjoy eternity together.

I have great memories of summers spent at the farm. I loved her Angel Food Cake. It was the best I've ever had and is one of my favorite. She even sent me one in the mail for my birthday. Loved our visits in recent years. Rest in peace dear Aunt Mary.

I have a few wonderful memories of my Great Aunt Mary! From learning how to tie her knot, to going to the farm and learning how to make her infamous angel food cake recipe. I really wish I had wrote it down and how many times the egg whites had to be beaten by hand. Sending love and prayers to Gene, Randy and their families.
