I am truly sorry to hear of the passing of your loved one, please accept my sincere condolences. I hope you will find some comfort and strength in Jesus promise of the earthly resurrection(Acts 24:15)and the renewed Paradise earth, where death will be no more and no family will mourn the death of a loved one.-Revelation 21:3,4;John 5:28,29;Luke 23:43. May GOD(Psalms 83:18)grant you peace and comfort now, during this grievous time.Matthew 5:4.

When my mother passes away in 2000... My grandmother was going into ICU. The doors opened so we could visit grandma. The nurse said " my name is Elaine" I knew from there my mother was watching over her. Brings me comfort to know they are finally united. I love you grandma. Truly one of Gods precious angels. Rest in paradise, forever loved and missed.

Grandma I know that you are at peace, surrounded with the light of the Lord. I know Grandpa John has been waiting for you, so has Jeanine, and anyone else that I didn't know who passed. YOU are a child of God and Jesus has you, carrying you to the right side of paradise as promised.

Here is my fondest memory I have --- Sitting around your bed at night, listening to you read the bible to grandpa john one chapter at a time. It didn't matter how many of us grandkids where there, their we all were. To me that is when I felt love, peace, and safe.

I am so sorry you never met my youngest daughter, Ashley. But keep on the look out for another great grandchild. DOB is around 2-28/29-2016.

Grandma, I miss you as does everyone else. I know you knew that until the night you went home.

Love, Shelly, Pam, & Ashley
