My deepest sympathy for your loss. May our Heavenly Father Jehovah bring comfort to you during this difficult time. His promise of the resurrection will soon be fulfilled. Then all suffering will end. (Rev.21:3, 4)

No words will soften the pain you are feeling. Your Mom brought you into this world and taught you how to love. Her love for her family is carried out through you. Your mom left so many values behind enstilled in you. Carry those with you and continue to share her love. May your faith help heal the pain knowing she is once again walking, dancing, laughing and watching over all of you.

Wendy, Mark, Adam & Aryn Mar 8 2017 12:00 AM

Since I won't be there wanted to tell you all how sorry I am but you know she is in a better place. That is a beautiful pic and how I remember her. Without her I wouldn't have my very special grand kids and greats. And many of the family who always made me feel welcome. Love to all of you.
