  • My deep condolences to the Malotte/Lalo family,
    I was really touched by the loss of your loved one. When a precious loved one falls asleep in death, it brings to mind God’s precious son Jesus. It is comforting to note how he viewed death. The gift that the Most High God has given to each & everyone of us the Bible. In the Book of John chapter 11 verses 11-14 please, notice that Jesus viewed death as one Sleeping. He viewed death in such a comforting way. And, the Most High God promises that we can have the opportunity to see our loved ones again in perfect health (Psalms 83:18, Acts 24:15, & Isaiah 33:24). He even says where: Psalms 37:11 and for how long Psalms 37:29). I really hope that these promises were as comforting to you as they were to us when our daughter died and also when my precious husband of 50 years fell asleep in death due to cancer. I truly understand the pain that comes from losing someone so precious to us. Written to you in deep sympathy, Sissy

    My sincere condolences for your great loss. It is never easy when we lose someone we love but it is especially painful when we lose our mother. Mother’s are so special in so many ways. May your treasured memories bring your family joy and comfort in the months and years to come.

  • My Sincere Condolences to the Family. I thought I’d google her name bc she came to mind… She was my Art Teacher at Phoenix Indian School ’83-‘85. She always was very pleasant soul. Who showed myself and a few other students how to make and improve beaded items mostly keychains to sell for spending money. She also would put our items in Art Shows and Exhibits. She allowed us to find our passion in Arts weather if it was beading, drawing, painting, leather work or dabble in it all. Thank You Ms Lalo for all you’ve done and taught me. May Peace Be With You
    Love & Respect
