  8. To' Eisen, Nening Naty and Family :

    Dear Tito Jake, Glen, Iris, Jeff, Tamara, and Family,

    We are sad and joyful at the same time about Ne’Ding’s going home to be with the Lord; sad because we are going to miss her physical presence, and joyful because we know she is with Jesus. For sure, her parents and siblings are rejoicing that their baby is home. For us who are left behind and have put our faith and trust in Jesus as our Savior and Lord, we are comforted with the hope that we are going to see our loved ones who have gone before us someday. I will always remember Ne’Ding as a person who was always the “life of the party”, especially as somebody who loved to sing. The family reunion we had in July was timely, fun, and just wonderful. Thanks to Iris, Jeff, and Family for allowing that to happen. Although we are not there physically, we are there in spirit. We are praying and will continue to pray for all of us, especially at this time. May God continue to comfort and bless us, especially Tito Jake at this time, and for days, months, and years to come. We also want to wish Jeff a belated happy birthday.

    Love and prayers,

    To’ Eisen and Family
