The family would like to conclude the obituary with a bible verse and a prayer that is helping them through this difficult time.

“God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference.”

“God will bless you, if don’t give up when your faith is being tested. He will reward you with a glorious life, just as He rewards everyone who loves him. – James 1:12”

Hunter Funeral Home is serving the Awalt family.

"There's a miracle called friendship
That dwells within the heart,
And you don't know how it happens
Or where it gets its start.
But that the happiness it brings you
Always gives a special lift,
And you realize that friendship
Is life's most precious gift."
