 I thought of you with love today but that is nothing new
I thought about you yesterday and days before that too,
I think of you in silence I often speak your name
All I have are memories and your picture in a frame
Your memory is my keepsake with which I’ll never part
God has you in His keeping I have you in my heart.

    To the family of Rosa: I was very saddened to hear of the passing of Rosa ( Nette) as she was affectionately called. May you keep the memories of her in your mind and hearts until we can welcome her back during the resurrection. When Jesus was on the earth he healed the sick and raised the dead and he (Jesus) promised that he will do this again in the future.; (John 5: 28 & 29 & Acts 24:15). Please read these Scriptures in your Bible, they can bring you a measure of comfort until the fulfillment of them. We will keep your family in our thoughts & prayers. Love, Mamie Andrews Boyd & Wilbert Boyd 29

    I want to extend to you and the family my deepest condolense for your loss. Grieving the loss of someone who is very dear to you will no doubt take time. But as each day passes, reflecting on the memories you shared and meditating on those promises found in the bible, will give you a hope and the strength to keep going. Philippians 4:6,7
