  1. Gary & Gail McConnell says:

    Autumn was such a caring, loving, and forgiving person. Always with a bright smile and a heart-felt greeting. For many years her voice warmed the hearts of others – now she joins the choirs of heaven. She will be missed by those close and far away. A loving mom and wife taken before her time. Our loss is heaven’s gain. Another saint now in the presence of God..

  2. Rev. James & Toni Gaches says:

    Our hearts we saddened when we heard the Autumn had left this world. But knowing her and the joy she always expressed to others, I know she would not want us to be sad. She was such a bundle of joy, love, & caring for all those she came in contact with. Our prayers are with the family, David, & all the children. I know she will be missed. But I also know she had left us such a wonderful example of a godly women. Just like in Proverbs, “she rose early to care for the household”. Which often included some of us. In times like this I rejoice to know every promise in the book is true, We will sing together again some day.

    Autumn, you and I have been buddies all our lives and I can say without a doubt you’re one of the very best friends a person could ever have. You were FAITHFUL to the end and truly you can say it was worth it all. You and Dave are the best and I will always cherish all the memories of our childhood. You’re with Jesus now and Grandmas’ Harris & Nina. So congratulations MY FRIEND you’ve ran your race and kept the faith and above all you’ve heard the greatest words ever spoken “WELL DONE THOU GOOD AND FAITHFUL SERVANT, ENTER THOU INTO THE JOYS OF THY LORD.” I sit here with tears in my eyes but looking ahead to the PRIZE set before me. Tell Mom & Dad I love them. I’ll do my most to be there with for I’m longing to see HIM too. I love you Autumn, Teresa

    Thanks for the memories
    So long ago;
    So swift they course
    As a beam of light
    That still lights the room
    Through decades of years
    And even in the absence
    Of you, the perfect friend.

    So sorry to hear of the passing of this precious lady. She was such a joy and I always loved hearing her sing or watch her worship the Lord through sign language. Years ago, for a few weeks, she taught a signing class at church. I still remember the song she taught us…..”Surround Me Oh Lord”. I pray that in the days and years ahead, God’s sweet presence and peace “surround” you all and bring you complete comfort.
