I can think of some many beautiful memories with my Mom! Many people Would not understand them as being funny because it's a Mom/jJane thing! I would come home from work at night and find her in her bed playing her Nintendo PACMAN game eating her Twinkees or Reese Cups. She would say she was waiting fir me to get home! I knew better! She loved fiercely and gave so much of herself to everyone! She had 4 of the ornery daughters that had ever been born. Rebels at different times! She was the one who always loved us no matter what! When each of us married or spouses became her children also! Then came her grand babies and great grand babies along with nieces nephews cousin and in laws she may not have liked us sometimes but she always liked fed us! I will miss are many talks over the years! I know she is in a better place we all of her friends and family! She and my father will be happy together once again. They will have my son Joshua with them! Miss you and love you Mom!

My grandmother was a strong force to be reckoned with. She loved fiercely and forever. I have so many great memories about her I could write a best selling book of Janeisms. It makes my heart warm to think about her with Grandpa and the McGee's playing cards and Mexican Dominos and eating endless amounts of chocolate.I can also imagine she will have so much more time in the day as she will not be looking for those pesky glasses anymore. I love you to the moon and back Grandma and I will miss you greatly

I was very sad to hear about Aunt Janes passing. I know she wasn't a true aunt, but she was always there and always part if the family. I had a wonderful visit a few weeks ago and am so glad I did. She showed me the birthday picture and I took a picture of it and made her tell me about everybody. She will be greatly missed. I let Barb and Dave know and David sends his condolences as well. Wish I could be there tonight.

At John 5:28, 29, Jesus said: “Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” This means that all the dead in Sheol, our loved ones included, will come back to life. Acts 24:15 reveals more about this grand event, stating: “There is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.” So even “the unrighteous,” many individuals who did not know and serve Jehovah, will get a future opportunity to gain God’s favor. Psalm 37:29 states: “The righteous themselves will possess the earth, and they will reside forever upon it.” Just some comforting words.
