  • My condolences go out to your family. As you prepare to lay your loved one to rest, may you find comfort from your Bible at Psalms 34:18. “ HE” is close to the brokenhearted and crushed in spirit.” This verse has helped me when dealing with the loss of loves ones.

    We have fond memories of Bert and her association with my Mom. They were good neighbors and friends for many years and enjoyed many afternoons of card games and laughter! Our kindest regards to the family.

    She was a wonderful lady. We have been blessed to have your families in our lives. God bless you all. She lived a good life and was an example of faith, love, and friendship.

    Charon cousins: some of my fondest memories of aunts and uncles are of your darling parents. They were always an interestingly joyful combination of short & tall, reverent & irreverent, but mostly people I wanted to claim as “family.” Time has passed too quickly, and we have been too many miles apart from each others’ company. Nonetheless, know my thoughts and prayers are with you. Your parents will be in good company forever more, with loving siblings and ancestors galore.
