    To my loving family:
    You have lost a wife,you have lost a mother, you lost a sister, you lost a friend. I have lost a neice and a friend. I look forward to seeing her again in the new paradise here on earth in the near future.
    (Ps 37:11,22,29).
    My family, may you find comfort in God’s (Jehovah ) word in this time of sorrow. Revelation 21:4,5 says that Jehovah God will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more . What a wonderful promise to look forward too. There will be a resurrection of the dead into that paradise.
    Love Auntie

    To my precious cousins family and friends. I’m sorry for the loss of our love one. I’m praying we will have all the time we need for healing tears to soften the heartache, for gentle walks through years of memories, and for God’s infinite love to fill the empty places with His everlasting hope and peace. Psalms 34:18 The Lord is close to the broken hearted and saved those who are crushed in spirit. I love Sheila very much, she was a woman of God and she love to praise the Lord. I will miss our times we spent together. Especially our times at the YMCA. We will see her again, all of those who are saved. Who have excepted Jesus as there saviour. John14:6 Jesus said, I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father excepted through me. Jesus under stands grief, and he loves us very very much! Love you all, Salena
