    I would like to give you and your family my deepest sympathy in this time of sorrow. I too have lost many loved ones in death, I miss them so much. But I found words of encouragement from God’s word the Bible. Isaiah 25:8 says “He will swallow up death forever. So death is something that was never meant to be. God’s word has never failed yet. You can put all your trust in God’s promises.

    I send my sympathies to you all. I wasn’t very close with my cousin Yvonne as of late, we saw each other more when Frances was alive. I will cherish the memories of them both just as you will also. My prayers and thoughts are with you as you mourn the loss of your grandmother, mother, sister, cousin, and friend; and feel proud of her next peaceful journey. Cousin Barb
