Aunt Kirma was always someone I enjoyed talking with! I have happy memories of our families getting together when I was little, before you transplanted to Arizona, and then of some fun visits to see you there in Mesa. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you this week as you gather for the funeral. I wish I could be there. Blessings on all of you as you honor Kirma and remember her life. Love you!
I would like to express my deepest and heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Kirma Larsen. I am truly sorry for the lost that your family is feeling. Experiencing the lost of a beloved family member is one of the hardest thing that any of us can go thru. And because of that my thoughts and prayers are with your family. Take comfort in knowing that God never intent for us to deal with sickness or death. But have assure in this wonderful promise that God holds out to us. He promise to give your family the strength needed in order to endure this great lost. (2 Corinthians 1:3,4) Something else that can bring your family comfort is cherishing the wonderful memories that you have of Mrs. Korma. These precious memories will console the family in the day’s ahead.
Condolences to the Larsen family. Our thoughts and prayers go out to your whole family. Psalms 147:3 says God, “heals the broken hearted, and binds up their wounds.” May God bring you comfort and peace.
