  • Bob, Becky, Adam, and Tyler,
    So sorry your mother (grandmother) had to pass so soon after a beautiful Christmas holiday. She was blessed by a loving family who stayed by her side through her final hours. May God hold each of you in the hollow of His mighty hand and comfort you.

  • Please allow me to express my deepest condolences for your family’s loss. I hope that you will find comfort in the real hope that the Bible gives of being reunited with your loved one again. In the Bible at John 5:28, 29 it reads, “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.”. The Bible there promises that your loved one will come back to life again in the resurrection. (Acts 24:15) The Bible also promises that soon death will be no more. (Revelation 21:3, 4) I encourage you to visit for more information about this wonderful hope.

  • Bob and Becky, Adam, Tyler,
    sorry to hear of Jean’s passing. We will be praying for her. And hope Leslie is doing well. I know that you are blessed in your time with her.

  • We are so very sorry to hear about aunt Jean’s passing. She was always so much fun to talk to. I remember the days of being at grandma and grandpa moreland’s house and Jean, uncle Buck, uncle Harry, and grandma would all be talking at once. They were so much fun to listen to. She enjoyed chatting with mom on the computer. When I would chat with her on the computer, she would be saying something that was to go to my computer and she would send it to mom’s computer. We would do 3 way chats and sometimes she wasn’t sure who she was talking to. We would laugh and laugh about that. We will be praying the Lord will put his arms around you and give you strength during this difficult. We love you all.

  • So sorry to hear of your loss with the passing of Aunt Jean.
    So many memories and so much happiness through her life and happy to have shared just a small portion of that with her.
    Even though I have not seen her in many years she was thought of often and always in my heart.
    Life passes by too quickly, I hope I learn a lesson by reaching out to loved ones when they are on my mind as she was on mine often.
    My thoughts and prayers are with the family.
