    Although I did not have the pleasure of meeting you until a few years ago you were someone who warmed my heart dearly. Such a beautiful gracious lady both inside in out. You will be missed dearly. My heart goes out to all the family. May you all be comforted with warm memories. It is a true blessing to have such a loving faithful and devoted family by your side until the Lord calls you home.

    To the Family,
    It is always hard when losing a loved one because we miss them very much. For that reason, we can be encouraged by reflecting on the promises that God has given us thru his word the Bible, concerning the hope of seeing our love ones again. I hope that you find comfort in reading these scriptures. John 11:11-44, John 5:21, 28,29, and Revelation 21:4. My prayers are with your family

    I am truly sorry for your loss, what really comforted me in my time of loss is the scripture@ Revelation 21:3&4 . Which gives us the wonderful promise of God wiping out every tear from our eyes and death being no more. I hope this promise from Jehovah will truly bring your family much comfort at this time.
