    May our Lord bless and comfort you and your family during this time of grief. Please accept my sincere condolences.

  2. Mary was a faithful wife and loving mother. She was a great nurse and helped put her husband through college and Medical school while raising 4 children. She will be sorely missed.

  4. Dear Family,
    I wish to express my Deepest Sympathy in the loss of your Loved One. The pain, the grief, and the feelings of helplessness can seem unbearable. The Bible gives comfort and hope, it promises that we will see our loved ones again, and death will be no more. “ And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”- Revelation 21:4. I hope this gives your family comfort and a positive hope.

    With Deepest Sympathy, Kristy
