“Friends and family, I am so sorry for your loss. When dealing with such hard times like this, i often like to turn to the scriptures for comfort. Revelation 21:4 talks about a time where God will wipe away all tears and get rid of death for good. What a great hope for the future this scripture holds out for us. I hope, you too, can find the same comfort that i have. ”


“I have been Kathys Housekeeper for the past 13 years and have developed a wonderful friendship with her over the years. She has been such a loving and caring friend to me. I sure will miss her. I am so saddened to hear of her passing. Sending hugs and prayers of comfort for her family. ”
