My family and I wish to offer our sympathy for the loss of your loved one. We have suffered with loss of close family, and empathize with you. We would like to share some encouraging words found in God's word that has brought me comfort: Romans 15:4 & Acts 24:15 " for all the things that were written beforehand were written for our instruction, so that through our endurance and through the comfort from the scriptures we might have hope". "And I have hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous." May you have comfort and peace.

Lisa, Laura, Mike and Family: I am so sorry for the loss of your dear Mother. She was always a wonderful and kind lady. She was a good friend of mine and I often would visit her and we enjoyed sharing Iris plants together.She had a green thumb and her tomatoes always was so large and good to eat. I will miss her but I know she is in a better place and most of all, at peace. Carolyn Hailey
