Condolences

  • Gail , Margie and I are first cousins. I remember what fun we had as children in Clinton, Utah. We played so many fun games. Gail would dress me up as a princess when we played the game of Aladin. She was always so much fun and even though I have not seen her for over forty years she remains fond in my memory. She was a great cousin and so much fun and full of imagination. Love Carol Kay Bonham Child

  • Gail and I had a wonderful relationship as first cousins in Clinton, Utah. She was fun loving and I have not seen her in over forty years but love and miss her very much. Carol Kay Bonham Child

  • To Mrs. Flake’s family, I’m very sorry for your loss. I wanted to offer you some comfort that I’ve found in the Bible. Isaiah 25:8 says “God will swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces.” I hope this promise that soon death will be no more, and we can see the loved ones we have lost again, brings you some comfort. (Acts 24:15)
