We are so sorry to hear of your Mohter's passing.
May God Bless and Keep You All.
Dana & Judy Light
Although our life's start without a choice.
It's always good to know when you find your happiness, you began to appreciate your life.
I know you have always lived your life according to your own values.
That's all that's asked of us.
We are so very sorry for your loss! Feelings of despair can be
overwhelming at this time. We pray that “the Father of tender
mercies, and the God of all comfort” (2 Corinthians 1:3, 4) will
give you peace of mind and comfort in your hearts. Acts 24:15
says that “there is going to be a resurrection” and Job 14:14,
15 shows that God has a longing to resurrect his friends! We
are so grateful that our loving God looks forward, as much as
we do, to reuniting us with our loved ones.
Betty and family so sorry to hear about your mothers death.We will be praying for the family. may God bless.
Meisha Kish-Carter and Quentin Carter/family

unconditional Love. Her memory will forever be cherished.
