  • Misty and family,

    I am deeply sorry for your loss. Helen was a wonderful women! You are in my thoughts and prayers. God be with you and your family in your time of grief!

  • To the Smith family. I am so sorry to hear about your loss. Death is an enemy that we will never get used to. The heartache and the pain can be very great. We all yearn for a time when death will be no more. The bible provides us with comfort at Revelation 21:4, where it tells us that ‘death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be any more.’ We look forward to a time when all these things will be done away with.
