Please accept our sincere condolences for the loss of your loved one. Psalms 34:18 tells us that the God of all comfort is "close to the brokenhearted" and Isaiah 25:8 promises that "He will swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces." It is our hope that these thoughts will help to ease your sorrow in the days ahead as you cherish your most treasured memories.Chilian family - March 17 at 7:58 AM
Words cannot express what the family is going through. She was a very "special" lady to everyone she met. I will miss that beautiful "smile". She was one of a kind. Prayers for the entire family.Peggy Hammons - March 15 at 9:47 AM
