Birdie Wood was known by many and loved by all. If you were in trouble and needed help, she would answer your call. Mrs. Birdie never judged or condemned anyone. She would let you know her opinion without making you feel guilty about your choice. This is a clear reflection of her love for God and her trust in Jesus as Our savior. I pray that you are comforted by the knowledge that she is in Heaven with our Savior and her loved ones. May the Lord bless you and keep you, and comfort you inside his loving arms.
