    Joyce, Fred and family–It is so unfortunate I meet the most wonderful people only after a serious life limiting illness has been diagnosed. Your mother was a wonderful lady! I enjoyed all my visits with her and she will be truly missed! May you be at peace she is now watching over all of those she loved. My thoughts and prayers are with you in this time of need.

  2. Liz Walker Says:

    I am truly sorry for your loss. At times like this we can see why death is called our enemy, it robs people of life and separates families from their loved ones.
    May Gods promises to
    End Death and make the dead live again bring you both comfort and hope.
    Isaiah 26:19 &Rev 21:3&4
