Im so sorry for your loss. May the God of all comfort help you during this difficult time. (2 Corinthians 1:3,4 & Psalms 83:18). Jesus prayed for Gods Kingdom to come because He knew it would be able to solve all mankinds problems even death. (Revelation 21:3-5).

When I was little I loved to go and stay with them in Waterloo and help with the babies. She was kind and patient. Love her

Mary used to write the best letters - using the perfect grammar and penmanship. I always smiled when I would see one in the mail. All my love to the Mitan family.
