My thoughts and prayers are with your family. Ma was a dear, loving lady. May you feel peace knowing she is in a wonderful place now.
Hello, my name is Ashley. I did not know Marian personally, but I wanted to express my deepest sympathy for your loss. At times like this, I have found Jesus Christs' words at John 5:28,29 to be very comforting where he promised that "the hour is coming when all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out...to a resurrection of life." We also have the comforting assurance at Revelation 21:3,4 that soon "God will wipe out every tear from our eyes and death will be no more, neither will mourning, nor outcry, nor pain be anymore." I just wanted to share something encouraging that has helped my family in times of loss. You will be in my prayers.
Tommy and family, we wish to extend to you all our deepest sympathy in the loss of Marian. She was a dear and special lady and she will be missed by all of us who knew and loved her. May God bless you with His comfort during this time of sorrow. We were greatly blessed by having known her.
