    Those we love leave us gifts in the form of memories that no one can take away. Wisdom that we can still recall. These are the things that we will cherish forever. May the family continue to look to Almighty God for comfort during this most stressful time since "He is close to the brokenhearted. He saves those who are crushed in spirit." Psalm 34:18.

    Dear Family and friends, I am so sorry for your loss; along with the pain come many questions; Job in the Bible asked, "If a man dies, can he live again"? (Job 14:14,15)The answer is yes!. We can have the hope of seeing our loved ones again, right here on earth. (Psalms 37:29)Please accept my deepest sympathies
