My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this time. My parents were very close to Ora as was I. We were all Past National Presidents of the Auxiliary and my dad was a Commander in Chief of the Sons. I have so many fond memories of times spent with Ora and am very sorry to hear of her passing. She lived a wonderful and full life and as I told my mother-in-law when my father-in-law died, she has nothing to stop her from running and jumping and laughing and living a wonderful life with our Lord Jesus Christ. I hope to see her again when I pass.
