  1. My deepest sympathy for your loss. What seems to be a long life is never long enough where our loved ones are concerned. Our Heavenly Father Jehovah feels the same way. That is why He has promised to swallow up death forever and soon end all our suffering. (Rev. 21:3-5; Isa. 25:8) May His promises be a soothing balm for your grieving hearts.

  2. My sympathies to you all. I always admired this pretty, vivacious and fun lady….ever since country (Dalbo) school when she would show up in beautiful outfits and lovely hairstyles and wearing high heels! I admired her so! Meeting up with her later in life, she still seemed to be the same one I so admired. She was so proud of all her family and what they were doing. She would come into CornerAcre when I had it and light up the whole place. A lovely person, she will be missed.
