    I would like to express my heartfelt sympathy to the family for the loss of your dear loved one. I lost my father last year and something that comforts me is that Jesus promised at John 5:28,29 that the day is coming when he is going to resurrect those in the grave. Until then, it is just like they are sleeping. (John 11:11-14) I hope that your family will find comfort in this too.

    Wife, Mother, Grandma, and Great Grandma. She was everything to us. My mother could do everything. She was dads right hand for God, family, church, work. She stood beside dad for better or worse. Mom and dad had the strongest marriage of anyone I have ever seen. It would have been 70 years on Jan 30, 2016. Mom would have been 89 on her birthday Dec 10,2015. Dad & mom kept us a close net family. Momma was a very strong woman. God bless her. We love you mom.
