  2. Larry & Jacquie :

    We want to express our deepest sympathy and condolences to all family members and friends who are grieving at this time. It’s hard to know what to say at times like this, but please find comfort in what it says at John 5:28&29: “Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life.” Imagine the joy of welcoming our loved ones who will be resurrected back to life as promised in that bible verse. Till then, it’s like they are “sleeping.” (Please read John 11:11-14) Soon, the earth will be a place where death, and the tears, pain, and sorrow will be a thing of the past. (Please read Revelation 21:4) May these sure promises bring you comfort.
    Take Care.
    Larry & Jacquie

  3. I want to express my sympathy and condolences to you, David and Susie, and my granddaughters Lindsay and Kaley, on the passing of your dear Mom and Grandma. As well, my condolences to all the family members and friends who knew and loved her. She was a lovely, talented lady and a true Christian woman who loved the Lord with all her heart. She will be greatly missed. We can take some comfort in the fact that she is with the Lord and her beloved husband Robert and that some day we all meet again.
